Case Management Training for Disaster Volunteers- Mar. 20

The Monroe County Community Organizations Active in Disaster group (MoCOAD) is seeking volunteers to be trained as case managers in the event of a local disaster. Case managers help survivors determine the best course of action for short and long term recovery, providing crisis intervention, advocacy and resources for food, shelter, medical, and re-construction needs. Volunteers must be organized, with good communication skills and knowledge of local resources. No previous experience is required. A free training, conducted by Catholic Charities, will be offered on March 20 at the Van Buren Township Trustee's office at 2130 S. Kirby Rd. Registration is at 6:15 p.m.; the course is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. This course complies with American Red Cross, Salvation Army and Emergency Management Agency standards. Please contact Bob LaGarde at or 812-825-4490 or Monica Clemons at or (812) 336-4310. (
