Long-term recovery assessment to be performed

MOORE — The Central Oklahoma Long-Term Recovery Coalition is partnering with World Renew to conduct an assessment of long-term recovery needs resulting from the 2013 storms. This is another step in working with disaster affected individuals and families to assess whether they have applied for all available services and their long-term needs have been identified.

The assessment focuses on those who are unaware of available support, how to access support or that they qualify. For example, those with insurance often need additional assistance, renters qualify, those who did not register with FEMA qualify and assistance does not depend on residence/citizenship status.

Until May 9, the World Renew team will provide door-to-door surveys and walk-in centers at the following locations:

· Oklahoma City: Variety Care Lafayette, 500 SW 44th St.; April 28-May 2, 10 a.m. -7 p.m.

· Moore: Serve Moore, 200 S. Howard Ave., May 5-May 8, 10 a.m. 7 p.m.; May 9, 10 a.m. -1 p.m.

Walk-in centers are not area specific. World Renew teams wearing ID badges and dark green shirts with the World Renew logo also will provide door-to-door surveys.

For more information or to schedule a home visit, call 2-1-1 and ask about the “disaster recovery assessment.”
