Statement on Hurricane Ian

Ian Landfall

Update 09/30/2022:

Thank you to all who reached out with words of support and encouragement during the worst of Hurricane Ian. We are able to report that all FLR staff and the FLR network have come through well and services, with only a few minor hiccups, are up and running for our members.

Please keep those impacted by this terrible storm in your thoughts. While the FLR network will play an important role in helping our communities recover, the immediate concern is for the health and safety of those affected.

You can help right now by making a donation via the American Red Cross at redcross.org/donate/donatio or to the reputable charity of your choice that is working in the area.
