Disaster case managers help Florence survivors

Trained disaster case managers are available to help find assistance and services for Hurricane Florence survivors who are still struggling to recover. “Case managers work with survivors to find solutions and connect them with social service agencies, voluntary groups or long-term recovery groups that can help meet their specific needs,” said Emmett Wainwright, individual assistance program manager for North Carolina Emergency Management.

Case managers help individuals and families develop recovery plans that connect them with resources that can help with financial, physical, emotional or spiritual well-being, as well as referrals for materials and/or manpower. The case manager helps households return to a state of independence.

Since disaster case management services were first offered in February, more than 4,000 Florence survivors in North Carolina have taken advantage of the free service.

Case managers are provided by Endeavors, an experienced provider of disaster case management services. To contact the Disaster Case Management service provider, email: DCMNC@Endeavors.org or residents of Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Duplin, Greene, Hyde, Jones, Lenoir, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, Pitt, Wayne and Wilson counties can call the Jacksonville office at 910-378-4913.
