Recovery in many different ways. Recoverying Oklahomans After Disaster (ROAD) mission is to help natural disaster surviving families who have limited or no means of recovery on their own receive free assistance (labor and materials) in repairing the damage left behind by the storm.
The disaster survivors ROAD helps are in a financial sitution and/or a health situation that prevents them from being able to meet the repair needs of their home on their own.
WorkForce assists those who have a barrier to employement. Throug the partnership ROAD has with WorkForce and Career Tech we are able to help each participant in our Vocational Training Apprenticeship Program learn new skills (contstruction, teamwork, life, etc.).
ROAD provides recovery to a home, to a family, and to an individual. This is often seen as hope for a new beginning. Mitigation is making a change which strengthens or otherwise enables something or someone to better withstand the same challenge in the future. Mitigation is reslience. Putting on a new roof makes the home more resilient to damaging winds and hail. Making a home safe and secure makes a family more resilient to the mental health pressures of shelter. Providing skills to an individual makes them more resilient to lifes challenges.
ROAD is making a difference by making homes home again in different ways!
