BROOKLYN -

A new service center opened in Manhattan to help victims displaced by recent natural disasters.

The center is located on Lexington Avenue and provides information on various services, such as the Red Cross and the Department of Education.

Organizers say having these resources is helpful in a time of need. They say a lot of the victims come to stay with family and friends, which is great, but not sustainable. The center is able to provide good services for people in one single location.
