PRS Disaster Case Management recognized as “Team Heroes”
The California State Council on Developmental Disabilities and Far Northern Regional Center’s Celebration of Heroes Committee recognized Plumas Rural Services Disaster Case Management Program (PRS-DCMP) as a ‘Team Hero’ for their outstanding work in embracing inclusion and creating acceptance and opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities and their families in the North State Community.
The Celebration of Heroes Committee acknowledged PRS-DCMP with an award and a letter sharing reflections from a Plumas County community member to the Committee about the program:
“The Disaster Case Management Team at PRS goes above and beyond to talk to community members from all walks of life. They do not discriminate whether working with a property owner, renter or homeless person. They work with many Federal, State, County and Community agencies to support fire survivors and help them move forward in recovery from the Dixie Fire. Everyday they see teamwork and including outside resources as the best way to serve their clients needs. I am very grateful to be working alongside a group of individuals from all walks of life. They have made it their mission to work together on one main goal and keep that goal held high so everyone in the county is benefitted.”
PRS-DCMP offers a variety of immediate, short-term and long-term assistance to survivors of natural disasters, including the Dixie Fire. Disaster Case Managers help survivors clarify their needs, identify resources and assistance to meet those needs, and apply for aid, as appropriate. In addition to basic needs they provide simple and complex case management to those looking to rebuild their homes and their lives after a disaster.
