Financial Recovery After Disaster Video Series

Are you working with families affected by a natural disaster? If so, these videos are here to help!

The Financial Recovery After Disaster Video Series is an engaging educational tool. Use the videos alone or in combination with your other disaster recovery efforts.

These videos are based on the award winning resource, Recovery After Disaster: The Family Financial Toolkit. They are produced in partnership by the University of Minnesota Extension and the North Dakota State University Extension Service. For more information on the creation of these videos, see About the disaster videos project.

Watch one or more videos to:

  • Better understand the challenges that families face on the road toward financial recovery
  • Start conversations with families on disaster recovery efforts.
