NORFOLK – As the grant for the Nebraska Strong Recovery Project comes to an end this month, members are thanking everyone for their support over the last few months of 2019 and 2020.
According to a release from the Nebraska Strong Recovery Outreach Team, the project has been an outreach program providing community-based counseling and identifying unmet needs during the 2019 flooding disaster and continue to the present time. The group served under supervision of Region 4 Behavioral Health Services based out of Norfolk.
The Nebraska Strong Recovery Project will end on Sunday, May 17 and the outreach team looks toward continued progress and resilience from this past year’s recovery as well as the ongoing current COVID-19 response.
This past year outreach workers have been working across the state in counties affected by the 2019 flooding disaster, reaching out door-to-door, networking with various entities in each community, promoting education and activities and providing a compassionate presence at local events.
Services provided this past year emphasizing self-care and well-being may well continue to be beneficial, as Nebraska now is coping with COVID-19.
Nebraska Strong team members have appreciated the warm welcomes, impactful conversations as well as a great sense of strength and resiliency found in the communities served by outreach work.
As this service draws to a close, a reminder to continue taking care of your physical and mental health, staying strong, knowing that last year’s flooding disaster and our current disaster will eventually be in the past, with brighter horizons to cherish in the future.
