Heartbreaking tragedies affect thousands of people every year, from devastating storms and earthquakes to wildfires and mudslides. Victims are often left in dire need of food, emergency shelter, clean water, electricity, and access to critical medical care.

The American Osteopathic Foundation endeavors to be a resource for our Osteopathic family when disaster strikes.

The Foundation has made every effort to vet each resource listed below.

Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Services - Information on how to stay safe after a disaster and resources for recovering emotionally and financially.

FEMA - Learn about the formal disaster declaration process, disaster types, how FEMA gets involved, and other resources.

FEMA, Individual Assistance - FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program (IHP) provides financial and direct services to eligible individuals and households affected by a disaster, who have uninsured or underinsured necessary expenses and serious needs.

Small Business Administration (SBA) - SBA provides low-interest disaster loans to help businesses and homeowners recover from declared disasters.
