Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC)

The MARC is a place where all disaster relief agencies both private and public come
together under one roof to provide assistance – a ONE STOP SHOP for affected
residents. These are never for-profit
agencies. Agencies in the MARC are
vetted and their staff and volunteers adhere to high ethical standards. A
verification system is established to identify those who have been affected by
the disaster. The MARC is configured in a way that survivors receive help while
maintaining confidentiality and dignity. There is a chain of authority that
provides for liability protection and consistent treatment of all those who
come for help.
