DepartmentAttack Poverty Disaster Recovery
Reporting StructureReports to Data Management Coordinator
Essential DutiesA disaster recovery case isn’t truly complete until we have a “Disaster Recovery Report” written up for our board members, donors, & partners to see. Instead of spending all day going on coffee runs and making copies, you’ll be creating engaging articles that help people see what an incredible impact Attack Poverty’s Disaster Recovery Team is having on the community of Fort Bend County as we steward the God-given resources entrusted to us as we continue to recover from Hurricane Harvey. This will require you to comb through our resident files, pick the brains of our team members, or do specific research on how certain areas of Fort Bend County were affected by flooding. On occasion, you may even get to interview residents. Whatever it takes to get the story! Your internship will also include gathering preliminary stories by making first contact & scheduling resident assessments, shadowing assessments, sitting in on staff meetings, and a weekly bible study. That being said, we won’t stop you from going on coffee runs if you really want to!
