The Long-Term Recovery Coalition of Broward County
Addressing the long-term needs of the residents of Broward County affected by Hurricane Irma.
If you are a resident of Broward County and need assistance, please call 211 and be sure to mention that you were affected by Hurricane Irma.
Although Irma was not a direct hit on Broward County, there was still significant wind and flooding in the area causing damage to many homes and apartments. But it doesn’t take physical damage to put people in a bad situation. A couple of missed paychecks can push a struggling family over the edge. The LTRC is here to identify the unmet needs of families and pull together the resources of the coalition to address those needs.
The mission of the Long Term Recovery Coalition of Broward County is to achieve efficient, effective long-term disaster recovery by coordinating and collaboration among its members in order to address the unmet needs of the community.
The Long Term Recovery Coalition of Broward County is a humanitarian association of nonprofits, governmental agencies, faith based organizations, and businesses with disaster capabilities or resources that respond to a declared disaster locally. It is not a competing or exclusionary organization. It is intended to be a network for organizations active in disaster recovery. Each Recovery Coalition member will maintain its own identity and independence while closely collaborating with other member organizations. It will foster cooperation among its members at all levels and in all phases of disaster.
