Disaster Case Management (Palmetto Disaster Recovery)

Disaster Case Management

Disaster Case Management (DCM) is a process that involves a partnership between a disaster case manager and a citizen to develop and carry out an Individualized Recovery Plan.     

Services Offered

  • Assist eligible citizens with their disaster-caused unmet needs.
  • Assist citizens in problem solving.
  • Long-term needs may include financial, physical, emotional or spiritual well-being.

Implementation Process

Once a citizen is considered eligible by their disaster case manager, the implementation process will begin. The objective of this process is for disaster case managers to:

  • Create relationships with eligible citizens to assess unmet needs and identify resources and support services.
  • Assist each citizen to develop an Individualized Recovery Plan (IRP); which is goal-oriented and outlines step-by-step actions.
  • Locate and connect citizens with available resources and support services.
  • Conduct follow-up activities to monitor progress, advocate for issues and document results and closure during the citizen’s recovery process.

Our Steps

  2. Set up an in-person meeting.
  3. Listen and assess all concerns.
  4. Identify unmet needs.
  5. Problem solve and match needs to resources and support services.
