Aransas County Hurricane Harvey victims now have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with disaster case managers to determine what, if any, aid and grant money is available to them for storm recovery.

“It gives us the opportunity to find out what the clients needs are and assess those needs and put them directly in front of a case manager and not just a computer so they can have face-to-face interaction with them,” Deanna Spruce of Aransas County Long Term Recovery said.

Disaster case managers from several recovery agencies will be at Rockport’s Aquarium Education Center Thursday, December 6 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. In order to meet with a case manager you will need to show proof of residency in Aransas County. Event organizers also ask you to bring a form of identification, pictures of your Harvey damage, and any paperwork you may have received from FEMA.

“We’d like everyone to come out,” Spruce said. “If they need help from the hurricane, we’d like for you to come to Rockport.”

Harvey victim Joe Samperi, who lives just outside of Aransas Pass but within Aransas County, estimates that he has $60,000 in hurricane damage. Is considering attending Thursday’s event and talking to a case manager.

“Yeah, I might look into that,” Samperi said.
