Community outreach work is being coordinated by Region V Systems to those affected by the flood living in Butler, Nemaha, Saline, Saunders, and Richardson counties. We’d love to speak with you to offer support and resources.
Contact the Rural Response Hotline at 1-800-464-0258.
What We Do:
• Build non-intrusive connections with survivors
• Provide physical and emotional support
• Address immediate needs
• Offer constructive assistance and public information
• Connect survivors to social supports
• Give voice to survivors’ stories, disaster reactions and strengths
• Encourage survivors to take an active role in their own recovery
Sometimes Nebraskans have to recover from storms and floods. The heroic phase of disaster response (sandbagging and people pulling together) is often followed by a period of disillusionment (disappointment with aid and coping with clean up). Reconstruction takes time – and can be stressful.
Nebraska Strong Recovery Project is culturally competent, understanding, respectful, and sensitive to the cultural makeup of communities served.

Nebraska Strong is authorized under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act) and funded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Administered through an interagency Federal partnership between FEMA and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Center for Mental Health Services, this project was made possible by the Presidential declaration of disaster and provides individual assistance for short-term behavioral health support, as the disaster response needs are beyond Nebraska’s capacity.
