The Rio Texas Conference has begun its case managing project thanks to UMCOR’s $100,000 grant. A supervisor and two part-time case managers will be working out of Martindale United Methodist Church to help with the projects.
The Disaster Response Case Managers’ purpose is to organize and help relief efforts for the Blanco River Regional Recovery Team and in surrounding areas affected by the Memorial Day 2015 floods. The team has twelve months to finish as many cases as possible. Cases include destroyed property and community support.
The grant will be supplemented by $27,000 from gifts made to the Rio Texas Conference Disaster Response fund.
UMCOR will be hosting a Case Management Training on Tuesday, September 15-16 in San Marcos. Rio Texas is asking for volunteers to help with the case managing efforts. Click Here to register for UMCOR Case Management training.
