Catholic Charities’ Disaster Response Program is here to help!
Update April 2013- Governor Christie's administration announced that Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton will serve as the managing agency for the statewide delivery of Disaster Case Management services, funded by the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). A grant of $8.7 million will be used to coordinate disaster case management among the five Catholic Charities in New Jersey. Disaster case management differs from other individual disaster assistance programs at federal and state levels. It is available to anyone who has been impacted by Sandy, regardless of the amount of funds or assistance that may have already been received, and regardless of prior enrollment with FEMA. The case managers will help survivors to develop a recovery plan, find resources, and provide one-on-one advice to help find solutions to unmet needs. Direct financial assistance under this grant is not available, but case managers will make referrals to other sources within Catholic Charities or other organizations. The grant runs from April 1, 2013- October 30, 2014.
If you or someone you know can benefit from disaster case management, please call 877-510-6762 for more information about this program.
