Shelter / Feeding Sites

    A multi-agency FEMA strike team is assisting families temporarily sheltered at state parks to transition to more permanent housing. Teams have been dispatched to each of the state parks to provide guidance and assistance to individual families as they make that transition.

  • The Red Cross has assisted with establishing a shelter at the Mayfield First Church of Nazarene at 1200 W. Broadway. For information, please call 573-747-7713.  The shelter will also feed families impacted by the storm.

  • Wingfield Inn in Mayfield has some rooms available for those in need of shelter. To reserve a room, please call 502-871-1437.
