HAMILTON, Miss. (WTVA) - Many storm victims in Monroe County are still trying to clean up the mess that the tornadoes in April left behind.

Some people were left with almost nothing, but now those people may have the chance to get a little bit of help.

Monroe Strong is a 501c-3, non-profit committee housed under the CREATE Foundation, meaning every dime of grant and donation money goes to the residents of Monroe County.

The goal of Monroe Strong volunteers is to help as many residents in the county as possible.

Anybody that needs help recovering from the storms can fill out an application.

The application asks questions about the people living in the home and the specific needs for each household.

Applications can be found at city halls in Aberdeen, Amory and Smithville, as well as at Center Hill Baptist Church in Hamilton.
