BakerRipley’s Get Connected Disaster Recovery Services aims to work with neighbors towards the restoration of their pre-disaster livelihoods, or to help them find their new normal. Impacted neighbors are assigned to a case manager who works with them one-one-one to develop a pathway to recovery. This is done by connecting them to available community resources and may include city/county services workshops, and direct assistances from trusted community organizations. Our focus is on low-income neighbors, the elderly, and people living in vulnerable neighborhoods.
To date, we’ve served neighbors that stayed in the NRG Center Shelter; those who contacted BakerRipley by referral from the 2-1-1 Texas/United Way HELPLINE or by other partners; those who contacted us directly; and those neighbors that have visited the Neighborhood Restoration Centers.
Anyone, regardless of status, can access and benefit from our services.
