Niagara Gazette — “That’s pretty much our standard response,” Bonafede said. “We try to meet their emergency needs for food, clothing and shelter.” He noted that after several days the family is invited to meet with a Red Cross case worker and directed to programs that can help them get back on their feet, including assistance finding a new home and disaster mental health counseling. 

“We have trained mental health volunteers who we make available to the survivors of any disaster if they need that kind of support,” he said.

Lisa Taibi, a disaster specialist from the Niagara Falls office of the Red Cross said she will be doing the followup counseling of the family, and will be working on a recovery plan with them. “I can help them get to where they need to go,” she said.
