SOTO HELPS GOOD SAMARITAN KISSIMMEE VILLAGE WITH FEMA RELIEF

Friday, January 5, 2018 - 1:00pm

Congressman Darren Soto visited the Good Samaritan Kissimmee Village to inspect the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. During his visit on January 5, 2018, Rep. Soto spoke with Village staff and was briefed on the strides made thus far in the repair efforts, as well as the long road ahead to full recovery. 

     

The Good Samaritan Kissimme Village is a fixture in the community and serves as a critical residence for numerous retirees in Central Florida. Prior to Hurricane Irma, the facility was home to over 1,440 senior citizens, but due to the damages incured the capacity is now reduced to 650 residents. 

After his visit, Congressman Soto submitted a letter to Brock Long, Director of the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), to request immediate assistance for the Kissimmee Village. He will continue to help the Good Samaritan Village mitigate future flooding in a timely manner and allow the displaced senior citizens get back to their normal lives as soon as possible.
