Recovering from Disasters and Preparing for the Future

Disaster Recovery

Program Status: Closed

Catholic Charities Disaster Recovery Program was launched in 2017 when Hurricane Irma hit our service area.  Currently, Catholic Charities does not operate our Disaster Recovery Program due to allocated funds being exhausted.

Catholic Charities nationally has expertise in disaster recovery, and we are committed to this cause. Catholic Charities participates with Palm Beach County Emergency Services on the Long-Term Recovery Group.  Should our diocese suffer a natural disaster severe enough to warrant an emergency declaration, we will re-launch this program to serve our community in a time of need. 

In any emergency event, Catholic Charities Counseling Program is always a source of support to survivors.
