This partnership provides the client with a single point of contact to facilitate access to a broad range of resources. The process involves an assessment of the client’s verified disaster-caused unmet needs, development of a goal-oriented plan that outlines the steps necessary to achieve recovery, organization and coordination of information on available resources that match the disaster-caused unmet needs, the monitoring of progress toward reaching the recovery plan goals, and when necessary, client advocacy.
The Disaster Case Management Program (DCMP) funds have been awarded to Volunteer Florida by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide disaster case management services to survivors of DR-4673-FL.
