At Project Porchlight, we believe that no one should face disaster recovery alone. Nearly 3 in 4 survivors experience a financial burden after experiencing a natural disaster. We help make post-disaster financial recovery faster and more affordable through personalized coaching that combines:
The chaos and disruption experienced during and after a disaster is significant. In addition to securing safety and basic needs, survivors face a steep learning curve to understand their rights, responsibilities, and options for recovery. They may no longer be able to rely on their usual routines, organizational tools, and support network to help them navigate these challenges.
Project Porchlight provides survivors with the tools, education, and support needed to take control of their recovery. Our nationwide network of trained counselors and educators help survivors develop and execute a personalized recovery plan, bringing impacted families back to their pre-disaster normal as quickly as possible.
We provide the tools, education, and support you need to take control of your recovery
Project Porchlight accelerates recovery through the early creation of a personalized plan and regular check-ins to overcome setbacks and maintain forward momentum. We strive to increase the use of FEMA aid by assisting clients through the application and appeals process while promoting engagement with financial and partner institutions throughout the recovery process.
We also provide a mobile-friendly, customized e-learning experience. The online portal includes moderated forums, allowing disaster survivors to share experiences, resources, and support. Tailored modules teach users how to avoid common scams, navigate insurance issues, connect with assistance programs, prepare for future disasters, and more.
