Officials report 8,000 homes repaired through Shelter at Home
BATON ROUGE – State officials report that almost 8,000 homes have been repaired through the Shelter at Home Program following August’s historic flooding.
“We are vigorously attempting to bring families back to their homes by the holidays,” a statement released Friday said.
Officials report that another 1,900 homes are under construction through the program.
Residents who withdrew from the program but want to reactive their case have until Nov. 23.
The Shelter at Home call center will be closed Thursday Nov. 24 and Friday Nov. 25 for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Officials say the voice mail system will be monitored for emergency issues.
Crews will return to work Saturday, Nov. 26.
