Long Term Disaster Recovery
The last several years have seen significant weather “events” which caused a great deal of property destruction, and had a significant long-lasting impact on the lives of hundreds of families statewide. The Mother’s Day flood of 2006, the April Nor’easter flood of 2007, tornadoes, and the ice storm of December 2009, all required immediate assistance in the immediate aftermath, and case management from the Long Term Disaster Recovery Team. This team helps to strengthen area-wide recovery coordination in Hillsborough County by sharing information, simplifying resident access to services and fiscal resources and helping to resolve cases of those affected by these disasters. SNHS is proud to be a part of the statewide network of Community Action Agencies assisting families in their struggle to recover from natural disasters.
