DISASTER RELIEF RESOURCES

NAPABA began its work in disaster relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. After Hurricane Katrina, NAPABA sent a delegation of members to work with the local bars in Texas and Louisiana to assist with APA issues, especially cultural and language barriers. During that process we learned about the lack of a “tool kit” for lawyers, to help disaster victims, especially the sizeable Vietnamese community living along the Gulf. Those tool kits now exists with the ABA and many State bars.  However, we found that existing resources needed to be supplemented with: points of contact of key local organizations, materials in various languages, legal information related to immigration and services to APA communities, as well as special resources such as how to obtain replacement I.D. cards and other legal documents.

NAPABA created the Disaster Relief Database as a central location to find supplemental disaster relief resources for victims and legal providers. The database is continually updated with new links and information.
