Oregon Disaster Case Management Program
DSC, SVDP-USA was awarded the OREGON Disaster Case Management Program (DCMP) in August of 2021. In the prior year the Wildfires created such havoc and devastation that some of the survivors were forced to live in tents and trailer trailers until more suitable better housing can be provided. Wildfires can be very unique in that once a fire consumes a house there is nothing remains except for ashes and maybe a stone fireplace. DSC SVDP partnered with grass roots organizations such as Catholic Charities of Oregon, Santiam Hospital Integration and Glide Revitalization. Catholics Charities of Oregon was responsible for the following counties: Jackson, Lane, Lincoln, Linn. Santiam was responsible for Marion county and Glide Revitalization was responsible for Douglas county. There were 23 DCMs assigned to the DCM program allocated based on the FEMA registrations. To date the total number of Households opened is at 988 households.
