I have asked St. Louis County Council for a transfer up to $1 million from the emergency fund to the Department of Humans Services to provide support to residents impacted by the unrest in Ferguson, MO.

I have been in Ferguson nearly every day since this unfortunate incident occurred; the residents there need a break and any support we can provide to help the community heal and get back on its feet should be provided.

St. Louis County’s Department of Human Services has been working with the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, the United Way and other agencies to operate a drop-in center for residents at the Dellwood Recreation Center. The County has been providing transportation for residents, support for utility assistance and staffing at the center.

I don’t know how much assistance is needed but with the appropriation requested we should be able to provide support when and where it’s needed, to our fellow county residents, in Ferguson.
