Help Available for Delaware County Residents Affected by Hurricane Isaias

 Home / Departments / Public Relations Releases / Help Available for Delaware County Residents Affected by Hurricane Isaias

Released: August 13, 2020

Toll-Free hotline established to connect residents with volunteer resources

In response to the devastating effect that Hurricane Isaias had on our region, Delaware County Emergency Services, along with our neighboring counties that were affected by flooding, have partnered with Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster (VOAD) partners to establish a Hurricane Isaias Home Cleanup Hotline to support affected homeowners.

Residents can call 1-844-965-1386 (toll-free) to provide details about the extent of storm-related damages they suffered. The information will be shared with volunteers from local disaster relief organizations, community groups, and faith communities who may be able to assist residents with various needs.

The Hurricane Isaias Home Cleanup Hotline can assist residents with:

Cutting and/or removing fallen trees and branches

Removing affected drywall, flooring, and appliances

Tarping roofs

Mitigating mold

These services are performed by volunteers and will be provided at no cost to the resident. Service is not guaranteed, and resources are limited. After providing your information to the Hotline, you may be contacted by a representative from a participating organization who will determine if they are able to provide assistance.

The Hurricane Isaias Home Cleanup Hotline will remain open through August 28, 2020. Calls are answered by volunteers during business hours, but residents can call and leave a message at any time. A volunteer will return the call as soon as possible.

PLEASE NOTE: This hotline does not provide help with social services such as food, clothing, and shelter. For food assistance please visit:

The hotline does not offer information about insurance, questions about FEMA assistance, or provide financial support.

If you need assistance with concerns not related to cleaning your home, you can call 2-1-1 or text your zip code to 898-211.
