The Resource: Technical Assistance from Your Coalition: Planning for the Unexpected

General Material
Published Date
January, 2015

“Advocates deal with the unexpected and the unplanned every day. It’s where we excel. But advance planning and preparation can make even sudden catastrophes easier to address. In this document, we’ve collected the lessons learned by MCADSV member programs that faced unexpected challenges and will guide you through necessary planning and documentation for your own program.

As much as we would like to create a response that works for every member of MCADSV, it is not possible. Each agency has different resources, community support, and facility infrastructure. Even within your agency, any written response you create can’t cover every nuance or possibility, but it gives an employee a place to start. Each topic area will include items for you to consider as you develop your policies.”
