Disaster case management: Navigating recovery one person at a time

2 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. CT

Oftentimes, disaster-affected families and individuals face a long, complex and arduous recovery process. They need an advocate within the community to help them navigate and access all available resources.

Disaster case management (DCM), which enables and empowers local communities to work directly with disaster-affected families and individuals to determine and address specific needs, is essential to the recovery process.

During this webinar, Cari Cullen, director of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s Midwest Early Recovery Fund, highlighted the new Disaster Case Management toolkit designed to help funders and nonprofits understand the DCM process. Speakers also shared the benefits and importance of DCM, including examples from their own experiences. CDP regularly supports DCM programs in communities following a disaster.

Cari Cullen, director of CDP’s Midwest Early Recovery Fund, moderated the discussion and panelists included:

This webinar was co-sponsored by Giving Compass, United Philanthropy Forum, Council on Foundations, The Funders Network and Philanthropy California.
