It's been twenty years in the making and taken a year of concentrated effort, but now we're proud to present Disaster Recovery: A Survivor's Guide to Insurance. Writing a book is something we've always wanted to do so when the opportunity presented itself to us, we jumped on it.

We’d like to thank the San Diego Foundation for major funding in support of this project, as well as the generous individuals [yes, that would be you] whose donations to CARe funded the balance of the project. We’d also like to extend our appreciation to the volunteers who took time from their busy schedules to do an initial draft review of this guide.

We cannot forget to acknowledge the County of San Diego, The Regional Community Recovery Team of San Diego, which we were able to participate in after the 2003 and 2007 firestorms in San Diego, and the CRT for their support. Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank Deena Raver for helping to initiate support for this project.

Besides the 100+ pages of information, illustrations and task lists, you can read some never before published background information on how CARe came to be.

The download will be available for free, but we are currently also working on a published book version that should be available soon. To read the book for yourself, click HERE! Please also feel free to forward the link to people you know who are in need.
