Notes:

From the website:

Our Mission is to coordinate recovery services designed to
alleviate suffering and stress for the people of Forrest,
Lamar, and Perry Counties who have unmet needs due to the
occurrence of a disaster. . . currently serving Hurricane
Katrina victims.

R3SM identifies unmet needs and resources of individuals
through a case assessment survey as a part of the casework
management process and meet those needs through collaborative
efforts. We support efforts to repair and rebuild homes and
lives beginning with the most vulnerable first. In addition we
attend to the spiritual and emotional needs of adults and
children and provide referrals. We advocate, through referral,
for accessible housing, schools, medical resources and
employment for all individuals, including those with
special needs/disabilities. We serve as coordination
point/clearinghouse for recovery funds, resources, and
volunteer labor in damage assessment, casework management
and rebuilding.
