Do Your Part is ready to assist the most vulnerable families impacted by this devastation with the challenges of short and long term recovery needs and resources. We will case manage the most vulnerable individuals and families to fill the gaps. So many are uninsured, or under-insured, and are in great need of assistance. In a widespread catastrophic event like this, it is imperative to focus on families and individuals without back up resources. Funds will be distributed in the form of gift cards; grants for building and repair materials; and emergency housing, to aid people with their urgent immediate and long term recovery needs.
