Do Your Part’s focused assistance is directed to all people impacted by the devastation of loss as a result of disaster, with a special emphasis on the most vulnerable populaces of communities (such as children; elderly; disabled). Key areas of focus include disaster response and logistics; disaster relief and long term recovery; and disaster preparation and planning. Our past and current projects are multi focused and occur within the United States but also in countries such as Greece, Haiti, Nepal and the Philippines. Key areas of focus include:
Disaster Response and Logistics
- We perform onsite and remote situation reports and needs assessments. We also help with evacuation coordination, resources and direction to people in the first response phase of disaster. Our team also assists in identifying involved organizations and agencies, their role and the kinds of services they provide in anticipation of providing Long Term Recovery resources to survivors.
Disaster Relief and Recovery
- Do Your Part supplies coordination and delivery to emergency and evacuation shelters. We provide distribution of relief supplies and household items to families setting up their lives after losing everything to disaster. Our organization also coordinates with survivors & government in an effort to aid in getting supplies to areas hardest hit with the least accessibility. Additionally, we provide insurance claims advocacy, providing education and support information to adequately understand and document an insurance disaster claim.
