We also cover the work provided by non-government agencies like Red Cross and the National Low Income Housing Coalition.

Objectives:

  • Learn how to access and utilize various disaster-related resources.
  • Help manage expectations, mitigate further loss, and serve as a valuable resource to persons and communities directly or indirectly impacted by disasters.
  • Understand various housing counseling agency opportunities for preparing and responding to disasters in our communities.
