Mission Statement

Bastrop County Disaster Recovery Center offers "One Stop" recovery resources to people who lost homes and belongings to the fires. Resources include volunteer help, victim services, relief resources, case management, plus fire safety preparedness and prevention assistance for everyone.

Description

The Metropolitan Austin Interactive Network (founded 1993) is America’s oldest community network. An award-winning 501c3 volunteer-led nonprofit, MAIN introduced free public Internet access in Texas, beginning with Austin’s Carver and Dove Springs library (1995), then statewide. MAIN’s network operating center in north Austin provides free hosting and online services for hundreds of nonprofit groups throughout Central Texas... a quiet, low-key nonprofit.

That changed September 4 th when MAIN’s office was caught in the most intense wildfire disaster in U.S. history. MAIN provides communication (BastropRelief.org) and volunteer services, and the Bastrop County Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) located at 1091 Hwy. 71 W, Bastrop.

This new locally-directed relief and recovery resource center, is now offering extended services for fire survivors and long term community recovery programs. DRC case managers are once again providing survivor relief and counseling services discontinued when the FEMA Disaster Recovery Center closed November 19 th. Office hours: 9am-5pm Monday - Friday; Volunteer Center and Resource Warehouse also open weekends.
