    A DIFFERENT VIEW

We are sharing with you our experiences with the federal disaster assistance agencies. We'll guide you the best we can. We'll attempt to update our guidance promptly when homeowners report changes to federal and state programs.

As new policy is created and old policy is updated or eliminated we'll bring changes to programs to your attention.

We have several grassroots programs which can help you if you interact with them. Don't think for a moment recovery will come knocking on your door. You have to go out and make it happen.

We'll help you build your advocacy group as well as help you with becoming a positive change activist.

Some groups you might be interested in.
