Regional Agencies Come Together To Help Wedgewood Fire Victims

The City of Castle Hills is cooperating with Bexar County and the City of San Antonio to continue to find services for residents displaced by the Wedgwood Seniors Apartment fire.

Five people died in the December 28 blaze — a sixth resident died two days later in a hotel.

The collaborative issued a statement on Monday, saying caseworkers have helped to find housing for 30 residents who had been staying in hotels. The group compiled a “Relocation Resource Guide,” which includes contacts for retirement communities, government agencies, medical resources, meal providers and other services available to the residents. Residents who are not staying at any of the hotels provided could have a copy of the relocation guide mailed to them by calling (210) 249-7090.

Case managers and relocation specialists from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services will be meeting with residents on Tuesday at two meetings, at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Residents or their relatives can call the number above for more information on this meeting.

Any questions specific to the Wedgewood management should be directed to (877) 304-5668.
