The Mission:

The Walton County Long Term Recovery Organization will provide spiritual, emotional, physical and financial resources to those affected by disasters, regardless of race, gender, creed, color, sexual orientation, disability or religious preference.

We accomplish these goals by engaging the faith-based, non-profit and community leaders into a coordinated disaster recovery entity. We utilize case management to ensure the most vulnerable populations receive the assistance they need, and assist them with their own recovery.
