Ohio Valley Long-Term Recovery Committee

Mission: To assist the people of the Ohio Valley to recover from and restore their lives after any disaster in a timely manner.

The LTRC is a cooperative body that is made up of representatives from faith-based, non-profit, government, business, and other organizations working within a community to assist individuals and families as they recover from a disaster. The goal of the LTRC is to unite recovery resources with the community need in order to ensure that even the most vulnerable in the community recover from the disaster. The LTRC focuses on four mission areas: Disaster Case Management, Donations Management, Volunteer Management, and Spiritual and Emotional Support.

Disaster Case Management is a time-limited process by which a skilled helper (Disaster Case Manager) partners with a disaster affected individual or family (Client) to plan for and achieve realistic goals for recovery following a disaster.

Donations Management provides a comprehensive process that organizes the giving, receiving and distribution of both solicited and unsolicited donated goods so that the maximum benefit is derived for the disaster survivors.

Volunteer Management is a key component of disaster recovery. Since volunteers come with variety of skill sets, it is important to place volunteers in roles that fit their ability. Those skills and abilities may include but are not limited to: debris removal, cleaning out homes, repairing and rebuilding homes, case management, program leadership, office skills, as well as professional services such as legal advice, accounting and computer expertise.

Spiritual and Emotional Support are critical in times of disaster because people lose their sense of safety and security. Moments like these require spiritual and emotional care teams to provide comfort, hope and help. Disaster victims are often vulnerable and hurting and simply need a listening ear to bring relief to stresses brought on by loss.
