A long term recovery group (LTRG) is a cooperative body that is made up of representatives from faith-based, non-profit, government, business and other organizations working within a community to assist individuals and families as they recover from disaster.
LTRGs are as varied in their structure as are the communities in which they work. The personality and operation of each group is unique and reflects local needs, available resources, cultural diversity, leadership style, and community support. No matter how a group is structured or what it calls itself the goal is the same: to unite recovery resources with community needs in order to ensure that even the most vulnerable in the community recover from disaster.

Tangent – Wind Storm damage, this project pulls together the resources of Minnonite Disaster Services and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to replace a damaged roof. Thanks to donations from faith-based and private resources, we will complete this project in August. Pictures will follow along with a list of contributors and business partners.
