Special Needs Program

Santa Rosa County Special Needs Program is a voluntary program that should be considered by individuals who have no alternative than a public shelter or, need transportation to a shelter. The Emergency Management Division recommends using this program only as a "last resort" and individuals with special needs should consider sheltering with relatives or friends.

See available Special Needs Shelters.
