There is no “one size fits all” recovery plan after disaster strikes. Because every disaster is different, our Disaster Case Management services place a high emphasis on the unique needs of each individual case. Whether you need short-term relief or require long-term recovery, we create focused plans and safe environments, while providing plenty of resource referrals for those impacted by disasters.
Our Disaster Case Management (DCM) services connect emergency or disaster victims to services and funding they may not be aware of, helping them recover after an emergency or disaster situation. From safety shelters and evacuation efforts to home repair, new furniture, and clothing, Endeavors seeks to help in any way we can.
Disaster Relief services provided for clients located in federally declared disaster areas:
- Comprehensive recovery plans
- Connection to immediate community resources
- Individual case management
- Recovery estimates and complete repair of the home
- Multiple, geographically dispersed disaster case management teams
Community support systems are often thrown out of balance during a federal emergency or after a disaster. We’re here to help steady the community network, making sure individuals can take full advantage of community resources and recovery can become more accessible for everyone.
We recognize that Disaster Case Management is most effective when done in conjunction with local community partners and have established successful community partnerships with Long-Term Recovery Groups (LTRGs), Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOADS), community nonprofits, municipalities, homeless/housing coalitions, and others assisting local communities impacted by federally declared disasters.
For Nadine Ford, losing her home to Hurricane Harvey meant more than just losing a roof to sleep under. For months Nadine lived with various family members and slept in her car until she was able to secure funds to rent a place to live. When those funds came through from FEMA, Nadine was able to rent a motel, although within a short time the funds ran out and she was told she could no longer live there, either.
With nowhere to go, Nadine, with the help of her daughter, reached out for help from Endeavors. That’s when things started to turn around. After a year and a half, Nadine would finally be able to return “home.” But it wouldn’t be the one she left as Harvey flooded its interior, it would be a brand new one, built from the ground up to replace the one that was a total loss.

PUERTO RICO (San Juan)
When Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Endeavors worked ceaselessly to secure offices across the island, setting up headquarters in San Juan. Since then, together with 16,000 volunteers, we have assisted communities impacted by the hurricane in rebuilding roads, bridges, and houses, in addition to securing and providing donations of food, clothing, and medical devices for those who needed it most.
Though we are no longer offering disaster case management throughout Puerto Rico, we continue to maintain our presence at our San Juan location, providing referrals to those who are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Maria.
FLORIDA (Altamonte Springs)
In 2017, Hurricane Irma proved to be one of the most destructive hurricanes to hit Florida. With many residents struggling to cope with Irma’s destruction, we began to help them recover.
Setting up headquarters in Orlando, we began helping Floridians rebuild their homes and their lives.
Since then, we have assisted nearly 2,000 people and have provided outreach and information to 37,000 more.
Though we are no longer offering disaster case management in Florida, we continue to maintain our presence at our Orlando location, providing referrals to those still feeling the effects of Hurricane Irma.
