NYDIS and its members work to increase community resilience and promote the development and coordination of effective recovery programs. These programs embody our member faith communities’ commitment to sustainable recovery in multiple areas, including supporting caregivers, advocating for the rights of victims, and working to ensure short- and long-term financial, mental, and spiritual stability for all disaster survivors.

Survivors and victims’ families need recovery programs and support services long after the traditional means of receiving government benefits are exhausted. Many who were impacted economically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually continue to struggle with the day-to-day process of recovery for months or years.
