Red Cross Teams With Partners in OK On Long-Term Case Management

By working with these partners, we can make sure all needs are being met.

The American Red Cross is working with four other partner agencies to provide long-term case management for individuals and families impacted by the May storms and tornadoes.

The Red Cross, Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, St. Vincent de Paul and The Oklahoma United Methodist Church will be working out of offices in Moore, El Reno and Shawnee. This is an unprecedented partnership known as the Oklahoma Disaster Recovery Project.

"Right now we've identified over 1,700 cases for long-term case management," said Red Cross regional CEO Janienne Bella. "By working with these partners, we can make sure all needs are being met. After all, two heads are better than one."

The long-term recovery offices are located:

  • El Reno: 401 South Grand Avenue
  • Moore: 1700 South Broadway, Suite G
  • Shawnee: 322 North Broadway (Opening Soon)
  • "Clients do not have to come to these offices," said Bella. "Assistance is not contained to a building. All case managers will be mobile."

    Long-term case management can include, but not limited to, help with medical bills, mental health care and assistance with minor home repairs. All cases are done by a case-by-case basis and individuals and families all have different needs.
