Disaster Prevention & Recovery Program
Disaster Case Management Program:
In response to the 2020 SCU Lightning Complex fire in the Del Puerto Canyon Road area, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Stockton is providing a Disaster Case Management Program (DCMP) for the survivors. DCMP assists survivors impacted by major natural disasters using a holistic service approach to facilitate long-term recovery. Disaster Case Managers provide individualized support in the areas of survivor advocacy, resource and referral services, and recovery planning. The goal of DCMP is to support the survivors in the recovery process by developing an individualized long-term recovery plan.
In Collaboration with local non-profit organizations and faith organizations the Vaccine Equity Program supports by bringing pop-up mobile vaccine clinics to communities that have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19. Structural racism and other historical inequities created many of the conditions that put people of color at greater risk for COVID-19 and for the underlying health issues that make the virus more deadly. We are committed to promoting vaccination and safety protocols to eliminate the spread of COVID-19 for everyone living in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties.
Housing for the Harvest:
The Housing for the Harvest program supports agricultural or food industry workers to isolate at home due to COVID-19. It is suitable for individuals who are sick with COVID-19 or have been directly exposed to COVID-19, and for those who may be experiencing symptoms. This program helps find free COVID-19 testing and assist with the appointment, provide referrals to transportation for health checks during the isolation or quarantine period when the virus would be contagious, and provide access to financial assistance or other needed resources. Meals, daily wellness checks, and other support are provided.
Covid Care provides a one-time financial assistance to individuals who have suffered financial difficulties due to the pandemic. Families and individuals are provided with short term case management to connect them to other available resources in their community. The goal of Covid Care funds is to utilize them in paying utilities, rent, groceries and other basic needs that the recipient may have.
