Hurricane Recovery at SCF

Hurricane Ian significantly impacted SCF's service region and many other areas throughout Florida and beyond. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is always our number one priority, and part of promoting safety is assisting with recovery from emergencies.

Support Recovery

The short-term and long-term ramifications of Ian will be significant for many of our students, faculty and staff. Expenses related to the storm include, preparation for protecting life and property, sheltering or evacuating, and repairing damage after the storm. We know many who have been effected will face temporary living situations and a loss of resources important for continuing to learn or work at SCF.

The SCF Foundation is accepting donations to assist the College community during these important days and weeks after Ian. Please visit to make a donation if you are able.


Storm Resources

There are many local, state and national resources available to access for information and assistance with storm recovery. This list will be updated. In the case of a life-threatening emergency, call 911.

The State Disaster Information Line can be accessed via phone by calling 1-800-342-3557.
