Because of our Midwest geography, Missouri is frequently struck by natural disasters (tornadoes, flooding, high winds, ice storms, etc.)

In fact, since 1990, we have had 40 major federal disasters declared. That’s more than one disaster a year for the past 30 years!

While disasters negatively impact everyone...

…vulnerable populations can be disproportionately affected, finding it harder to regain their bearings.

This group might include children, persons over 65 years of age, women head of households, those hovering around the poverty line, persons with disabilities, homeless individuals, and those struggling with health challenges (mental & physical).

A window of opportunity

Research suggests there is a window of opportunity to get these individuals back up and functioning following a disaster or risk a potential life-long aftershock.

Care Management:

In 2023 Disaster Services focused on developing Disaster Prevention and Preparedness programming. In 2024 we will continue this development and through outreach, work toward helping the people of Northwest Missouri avoid the sudden situational poverty that often strikes after a disaster. We will provide Disaster Case Management when and where it is needed and work with our clients to develop and accomplish their long term recovery plans.
