Transition to Long Term Recovery
The Dallas tornado response is transitioning from urgent relief to long-term recovery, so HPUMC is working with UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) and the North Texas Conference, as well as a consortium of local churches, non-profits and government entities organized through Unite Greater Dallas. While debris has been cleared, families must now contend with the difficult process of adjusting to a “new normal”. In order to move from transitional back into permanent housing, to replace damaged vehicles and lost furnishings, and to recover from the financial hit of the emergency, those affected will need special expertise not found in typical social service agencies.
HPUMC is assisting in bringing Volunteer Disaster Case Management training to Dallas. These volunteer case managers can commit as much or as little time as they wish, to assist those affected. If you would like to learn more about what’s involved, please register HERE to receive information.
HPUMC’s Disaster Relief fund is continuing to accept donations to provide for family needs as well as to support case management and coordinated response.
