More than 4,500 households in all three southeastern Wisconsin counties were impacted by the floods, leaving many residents with unmet needs, according to a release from Wisconsin Emergency Management.
Organizers of the long-term planning committee are looking for volunteers with experience in case management, construction management, emotional and spiritual care, fundraising, volunteer management, donations and resource development.
"Often times participants of long-term recovery groups include faith-based organizations, non-profits, volunteer groups, private sector partners, government agencies, and more. However, sometimes non-traditional partners or individuals that come to the table can offer some great key resources that go a long way in long-term recovery, so we have an open invitation for anyone willing to help in our efforts," Sarah Jensen, voluntary agency liaison with Wisconsin Emergency Management, said in an email.
Organizers hope the long-term planning committee will expand resources, avoid duplication of services and help generate solutions, the WEM release noted.
