FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.  — Residents of Fort Myers Beach will soon have access to a centralized location from where they can get all of the services necessary to help them get back on their feet.

The Beach Baptist Church in Fort Myers Beach will soon become the home of a Community Resources Center that will be operated by Lee County.

The building was built because FEMA, the Florida Division of Emergency Management, and Lee County, Florida, worked together.

Locals will be able to apply for food aid via DCF programs that will also be present, and they will also be able to get support from FEMA.

At the resource center, you will also find representatives from local and national non-profit organizations that are assisting with the recovery efforts.

The county reports that the facility will also have mobile restrooms and shower trailers for the convenience of the community.

Additionally, a water and ice delivery facility will be located at this location.

Fort Myers Beach residents may find it at 130 Connecticut Street, which is located on the southwest corner of Estero Boulevard. Business hours will be Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
