Red Cross One Stop Shop Helps Victims of Central Arkansas Tornado

VILONIA, AR - "Well you don't know where to start until you know what your insurance is going to do if they are going to tear it down or just fix it we don't know, says Marylin Crow.

Marylin and Lewis Crow live in one of two homes in their neighborhood that still stand after the deadly tornado touched down in Vilonia.

"All of this was new storm windows and they just blew," says Marilyn.

Although the Crow home is still standing their home is unlivable with extensive damage.

"Probably 180,000, that's approximate I don't know," says Crow.

Which is why they found themselves at the Red Cross's multi agencies relief center.

"You come and you stop at door one and just they will take you down to the next and you are signing up, and if things become available you will already be signed up," says Marilyn.

The Marc Center is a one stop shop for tornado victims.

"We come up with a plan so that we find big venues like this warehouse and we provide not only the client services for the Red Cross but we invite in all the other partner services," says Stan Rosenzweig.

Nine agencies are there to help victims like the Crows get back on their feet and rebuild what they once called a home.
