Disaster Recovery

Call the 24-Hour Crisis Line at (319) 351-0140 for more information

The Crisis Center is ready and available to respond with trained staff when a natural disaster occurs. We coordinate with the United Way of Johnson County and other agencies to reach out to all Johnson County residents who have been affected. Past efforts have included services for the survivors of the April 2006 tornado and the floods of June 2008.

How We Respond

Our Disaster Recovery program provides case advocacy, financial and emotional support to individuals and families. Staff will meet with you regularly to provide information about assistance programs that are available, help with application processes, connect you with other resources that can aid with relocating or rebuilding efforts, and provide support as you recover emotionally.

If your family, home or business has been affected by a recent natural disaster, please contact the 24-Hour Crisis Line at (319) 351-0140 for assistance.

If you have experienced a personal disaster, such as a fire, contact the American Red Cross Grantwood Chapter at (319) 393-3500.
