There is so much related to this disaster to still be assessed and we are working closely with the impacted families, community-based organizations on the ground, local governments, and FEMA to determine where philanthropic funds are most needed. Starting Monday, June 26, the Support Surfside team will be on site at the Family Assistance Center that was created by Miami-Dade County to provide Visa gift cards for verified victims and to assess community need.
Hardship fund guidelines are being created and will be shared here as the extent of the crisis continues to unfold.
