HOTEL INC has recently partnered with the City of Bowling Green to address the lasting effects of the December tornadoes. Our Navigators will work to partner with victims impacted by the tornadoes to address the mid and long term facets of their recovery. Additionally, we may be able to assist those impacted with temporary financial assistance as they await their Disaster Unemployment Assistance, while they wait for their impacted employment to return or while seeking new employment.
We are also able to assist victims impacted by the tornadoes with their transportation needs through a partnership with the City of Bowling Green and utilizing Uber vouchers. These vouchers will assist victims with getting to work, school, medical appointments, the grocery store, religious services, and to any tornado recovery appointments.
