Amazing Recovery Efforts for Hurricane Harvey


Visionlink is proud to support the work of National VOAD's Project Comeback in Texas with our multi-agency Disaster Case Management solution, helping case managers from 14 nonprofit partners assist more than 12,000 households. 

Under a federally-funded case management grant, the 14 non-profit partners achieved some unbelievable outcomes in the last 18 months:
  • 12,500 households served
  • 34,00 Texans in 33 counties
  • Connected clients to 10,000 services or referrals
  • Value of assistance to survivors was more than $38,000,000.
Using Visionlink's proprietary API Builder, National VOAD and the American Red Cross built a truly innovative solution to connect two systems to coordinate financial assistance. 

This connection enabled both agencies to coordinate millions of dollars of much needed financial assistance and deliver appropriate services to those most in need.

The case management module (which is part of a broader suite of disaster tools from Visionlink), was built with feedback from more than 50 voluntary agencies and dozens of thought-leaders in the case managment world. 

And the work continues!  Congrats to the agency partners, their leadership and the case manager professionals.
