Assistance needed for Bastrop fire evacuees
A request has come to us from the Crisis Counseling Coordinator for the Bastrop Ministerial Alliance.
They are requesting social workers (no license needed) to come and talk with evacuees. At this time they have no formal schedule or structure. They simply ask you to come to the Bastrop Convention Center (click here for maps & directions) to receive instructions for help. They anticipate needing help for a number of days to come.
