DSAS Assists Victims of Hurricane Maria

On November 21st, Health and Human Services (HHS) staff participated in a Resource Fair at Old Brooklyn Neighborhood Center (NFSC) to help victims of Hurricane Maria who recently moved to Cuyahoga County from Puerto Rico. All HHS Divisions were represented, including Children and Family Services, Jobs and Family Services, Office on Homeless Services and the Division of Senior and Adult Services (DSAS). Below is a photo of Marlene Robinson-Statler, DSAS Executive Officer; Daphne James, DSAS Special Projects Manager; and Lizzette Mendez-Romain, Bi-lingual Adult Protective Services Social Worker, who all served at the Resource Fair to ensure that consumers received information about services and programs for older adults and adults with disabilities.

Lizzette Mendez-Romain, was able to assist the granddaughter of one of her clients who had just come from Puerto Rico the previous week with her husband and two small children. Lizzette provided Spanish interpretation for her and her husband along with the EFS case manager and eligibility specialist. This collaboration resulted in the family being signed up for Medicaid Benefits. This family, whose home was swept away in the rage of Maria, was very thankful and so humbled our DSAS staff members who were there to make a difference in these victims lives. Per Lizzette, "This was an awesome opportunity for DSAS to be involved and help the Latino community."
