Disaster Case Management

Disaster Case Management (DCM) is a process that involves a partnership between a disaster case manager and a citizen to develop and carry out an Individualized Recovery Plan.

Mobile Intake Sites:

As part of the evolving protocols for dealing with reducing potential COVID-19 exposures, state agencies have been directed to employ practices that promote social distancing and eliminating non-essential travel.  Because of this directive we must CANCEL the mobile intake sites until further notice.  We will update our information as the situation warrants.  We ask for your patience and cooperation during this difficult time for our community.  If you must talk to someone regarding services available through Palmetto Disaster Recovery please call #1-888-860-7137

  • Assist each citizen to develop an Individualized Recovery Plan (IRP); which is goal-oriented and outlines stepby-step actions.
  • Locate and connect citizens with available resources and support services.
  • Conduct follow-up activities to monitor progress, advocate for issues and document results and closure during the citizen’s recovery process.
