Many of these individuals and families will be ones for whom no socioeconomic safety nets exist: the underemployed, uninsured, underpaid and underfed, and undocumented residents of low-lying sections of Brooklyn, Staten Island and Long Island. disaster case management will be the means by which these neighbors will obtain the tools and resources they need to get back on their feet.
