HOPE Coalition America is the national emergency preparedness and financial recovery division of Operation HOPE, Inc., America’s leading provider of economic empowerment programs and services. The coalition is a collaboration of senior executives and professionals from the banking and financial services, insurance, and other industries. Additional participants include social service, and community services agencies, which provide financial and economic recovery information and guidance to individuals and small businesses affected by disasters.
Two of our principal tools: the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit (EFFAK), is a document which aids people to create detailed listings of their important personal and financial information; and the companion document, the Personal Disaster Preparedness Guide (PDPG) guides them through the survival and recovery steps they should take prior to an emergency. The documents are available as a free download from our website www.operationhope.org.
The United States has a strong network of first responders to address immediate health, safety, and infrastructure needs after disasters, through agencies such as the Red Cross and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). HOPE Coalition America strengthens that network by assisting individuals with the short, medium and long-term economic and financial challenges they face following disasters.
