Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Disaster recovery is much of an untold story. News media covers a great deal of the story during the initial response in a disaster. Within a couple of weeks the media turns to other recent news leaving the impression in many minds that the disaster survivors are no longer in need. Nothing could be further from the truth. Many disasters take months to years in order to meet all the needs left in the wake of a disaster. Our project and volunteer management stays for the long term of recovery helping those with no means of recovery on their own. We continue to tell the need of the disaster survivor through our volunteer recruiting efforts, social media, and newsletters. Long term recovery needs the focus of the news media, foundations, and other funding organizations to help those engaged in long term recovery to have enough resources to serve until the last disaster survivor is served in the same way the first disaster survivor was served.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to provide home repair services using volunteer labor for all the disaster survivors who have no means of recovery on their own until the last disaster survivor is recovered. Through our volunteer recruitment efforts we aim to provide education about the need for long term recovery.

Through public relations efforts we are informing and engaging volunteers and donors alike to partner with us in accomplishing our mission. We also offer vocational training through the provision of disaster home repairs providing second career opportunities to those in unemployment situations.

We provide project management that assess the home needs, delivers building materials, and provides tools and product knowledge for the volunteer team to accomplish the task. Through volunteer management we recruit and serve the volunteer team in providing the project, tools, knowledge, and housing arrangements they need in order to have a successful and effective mission. For our vocational training program we provide classroom curriculum, hands on learning labs, and on the job training teaching many construction disciplines while recovering a disaster survivors home.

Since inception we have completed the 2015 spring flooding disaster projects and 2018 spring wildfire projects. We are currently serving the 2019 spring flooding disaster survivors. Over the last eight years Oklahoma has continuously had disaster survivors in need of recovery.
