Resilient Rurals’ Rural Assist Program Outline

Rural Assist prepares and empowers members of our partner communities who may be especially vulnerable in severe weather due to health conditions, living conditions and other circumstances.


The program model is available to any community looking to better serve their vulnerable populations as intensifying climate change impacts put them at disproportionate risk.
