Alternate Title: Disaster Recovery Homelessness Toolkit: Planning Guide for Local Jurisdictions: Addressing People Experiencing Homelessness in the Disaster Planning Effort

From the Document: "Stronger disaster plans will address the specific needs of persons experiencing homelessness. The plan should detail the steps that will be taken to accommodate the specific needs of homeless persons as they cope with the disaster and what entity is designated to take these steps. These needs include shelter, services, and evacuation support, as well as appropriate outreach and communication to homeless individuals and families. Key items to keep in mind are those that affect life and safety such as access to safe shelter, food and water, and medication."
