Central Oklahoma Long-Term Recovery Coalition to Survey Disaster Survivors
The Central Oklahoma Long-Term Recovery Coalition is partnering with World Renew to conduct an assessment of long-term recovery needs resulting from the May/June 2013 storms. This is another step in working with disaster affected individuals and families to assess whether they have applied for all available services and their long-term needs have been identified.
The World Renew team will be in the area April 28th to May 9th providing door-to-door surveys and walk-in centers at the following locations:
- Oklahoma City: Variety Care Lafayette, 500 SW 44th St; April 28-May 2, 10:00-7:00
- McLoud: Emmanuel Baptist, 16901 S Fishmarket Rd; April 28-May 2, 10:00-7:00
- Carney: Community Event, Main Street, May 3, 10:00-2:00 pm
- El Reno: First Christian Church; 400 E Barker Ave, May 5-6, May 8, 10:00-7:00; May 9, 9:00-12:00
- Moore: Serve Moore, 200 S. Howard, May 5-May 8,10:00-7:00; May 9, 10:00-1:00
The walk-in centers are not area specific. For instance, a family impacted in El Reno is welcome to visit ANY walk-in center for the assessment. Door-to-door World Renew teams will be wearing ID badges and dark green shirts with the World Renew logo.

The Central Oklahoma Long-Term Recovery Coalition is a collaboration of community-based organizations and Long-Term Recovery Committees (LTRCs) across the areas impacted by the May/June 2013 storms. The goal of the collaborating entities is to help disaster survivors who, after insurance or government benefits, still need help recovering.
