What services are available to a community that is recovering from a disaster? Are these services beneficial to individuals or the whole community? Services that are available to the community are many and abundant after the wake of a disaster. For example, Emergency Medical Assistance, Emergency Shelter, housing assistance to individuals and families who have lost their homes as a result of a presidentially-declared disaster. Also, disaster-caused expenses including, medical and dental, child care, funeral and burial, essential household items, moving and storage, vehicle, and some clean-up items. Plus, persons with disabilities can receive durable medical equipment (DME), and medications at no cost to all that need them. Next, the community will have immediate access to these community organizations, National Emergency Child Locator Center (NECLC), National Emergency Family Registry and Locator System (NEFRLS), National Mass Evacuation Tracking System (NMETS), and National Shelter System (NSS).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
