Disaster Recovery: A Guide to Recovery

Disasters take both emotional and financial tolls. Families recovering from a disaster will find this information helpful in obtaining a financial balance after a disaster has hit. This booklet offers suggestions on steps to take immediately, what to do in the initial weeks and months, and how to begin planning again for the future.

When a natural or other disaster strikes, life suddenly changes. Routines are shattered, jobs disrupted, and property destroyed. Loved ones may be injured or lives lost. If you have experienced a disaster, you know firsthand the emotional toll that it takes—shock, confusion, grief, and fear that catastrophe could strike again. Emotional recovery can take months, even years. View the website.
