The Whole Community: Planning for the Unthinkable

My Brothers Keeper

The idea is for a HOUSING BANK. FEMA would put out a call for people willing to take disaster victims into their own homes, until the disaster area was safe for them to return. (Second homes and lake cabins could also be offered) FEMA reimburses homeowners for costs. This would be an ongoing nationwide housing bank that could be called on immediately to get victims shelter, food, and other necessities so they don't linger days and weeks on end in unlivable circumstances.
