The Disaster Services Corporation Helps Americans Rebuild their Lives through Systemic Change
As many as 4.7 million Americans have registered for FEMA aide this year alone. FEMA distrubuted over $480K in 2016 and have increased by $180K in each of the previous years. Hard working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs after a disaster event impacts their home and community. Disasters can place middle income families in an economic hardship, unable to recover financially to move forward or rebuild savings. Often times it's our middle class that does not ask for help or know how to seek for it. In a way it's this subgroup that may struggle the most in the recovery phase. The Disaster Services Corporation is here to help and offer hope.
