Social Relationships

Recovery Resources for Social Relationships

Social relationships are integral for everyone; however people with disabilities often have smaller social circles. Following a disaster, people with disabilities may lose social relationships and community supports due to relocation, displacement or loss of support systems. 

The Long-Term Disaster Recovery Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities is funded through grants awarded by the American Red Cross to Dr. Laura M. Stough at Texas A&M University and Dr. Amy N. Sharp at the University of Texas at Austin and is maintained by the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University.
