What is Disaster Case Management?
Recovery and rebuilding a life after a disaster can be overwhelming. With so many applications, steps, and follow-up, it can be hard to know where to start or who to contact. Disaster Case Managers are designed to help people through that. Disaster Case Management is a process in which a trained case manager partners with a survivor to plan and facilitate a road to recovery and resilience. This process is focused on empowering the survivor to take responsibility for their own recovery while helping them to navigate and obtain the resources they need to recover.
Who can receive Disaster Case Management?
Any person who was impacted by the Woolsey Fire and lacks the resources necessary to recover is eligible to receive assistance from a Disaster Case Manager. Due to limited capacity, cases may be prioritized by those with the greatest need, such as those who are without stable housing.
What happens when I submit this form?
By filling out this form, you are requesting Disaster Case Management assistance from one of the agencies participating in LAC's Long Term Disaster Recovery Group. Your request will be shared with a Disaster Case Manager from one of the agencies providing this service (Salvation Army, Jewish Family Services, and Buddhist Tzu Chi), and you will be contacted for follow up only if you provide consent to share this information. For data security purposes, 211 LA will not store nor be able to check on the status of your request, as your information will go directly to the agencies providing disaster case management services.
Why do I need to consent to share information?
Disaster relief agencies, voluntary organizations and government agencies active in disaster recovery are committed to respecting your privacy. It is necessary at times for your Disaster Case Manager to share personal information gained during your partnership to coordinate and provide disaster relief assistance. Therefore, your written consent to share and receive information for disaster-related services is necessary. By checking the box next to each statement below, you affirm the organization can share or receive your household’s information appropriately to advocate on your behalf and to avoid duplication of services.
