Disaster Manual: Section 19 - Disaster Resource and Referral Guide

Disaster Relief

Address legal problems resulting from a disaster

This is the nineteenth section of the Disaster Manual. This section contains information on resources available to help disaster victims. This resource is meant for volunteer lawyers. This resource was written by Lone Star Legal Aid.

At times, a referral to an attorney is not the best course of action. In your search for assistance, you may find that private community organizations or one or more local, state, or federal agencies can help you. In addition to providing emergency information, this guide lists resources, community service organizations, and government agencies with offices located in the areas where the people are being temporarily housed. It also includes the toll-free numbers for many state and federal agencies.
