State Opening Recovery Resource Centers for Storm Cleanup Efforts

Road to Town Neck Beach, Sandwich

MARSHFIELD – The state will open two resource centers this week for homeowners who have been affected by the weekend nor’easter.

Gov. Charlie Baker announced Wednesday that the centers, which will be located in the hard-hit coastal communities of Quincy and Marshfield, will provide programs and enhanced services to assist homeowners and tenants who are now dealing with disaster recovery.

Those who cannot make it in person to one of the centers can also call 2-1-1 to access assistance.

“We are opening these Resource Recovery Centers to ensure the people whose homes were damaged by last week’s severe coastal flooding have access to the resources they need to get back on their feet,”said Baker. “The Centers andMassachusetts 2-1-1will be set up in Quincy and Marshfield to serve our coastal communities in need, and we are grateful that volunteers are willing to pitch in to visit damaged areas to clean up debris in homes and businesses.”

The centers will be a collaborative effort between the Red Cross and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. Representatives from key state agencies, the Salvation Army, and the American Red Cross will be on hand at each location.

The Marshfield Recovery Center will open Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Martinson Elementary School.

The Quincy Recovery Center, located at 1 Merrymount Parkway, is open Thursday and Friday 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The state’s 2-1-1 information line service will act as a virtual recovery resource center beginning on Thursday for residents who cannot make it to either location.

“The response to last week’s storm would not be possible without the hard work and cooperation between the Commonwealth, MEMA, the National Guard, volunteers and all those impacted by this storm and we are grateful for their ongoing commitment to keep Massachusetts safe,”said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito.“Many communities and their residents are still recovering from last week’s major coastal storm and we hope these new resources will ease the recovery process and help people get back on track.”
