Joplin Hope Center for Disaster Recovery looks to help other communities


JOPLIN, Mo. — The May 22nd, 2011 tornado was one of the worst natural disasters in our nation’s history.

And one organization is making it easy for communities to start the recovery process – should something similar happen to them.

That’s the purpose for the Joplin Hope Center for Disaster Recovery. The digital information storehouse is a partnership between Missouri Southern, the city of Joplin, and the Joplin School District.

Jane Cage, Joplin HOPE Center For Disaster Recovery, said, “But people still wonder how to get a head start, you know a community that’s been impacted by a tornado wants to find information they can use that somebody else has already vetted, or looked at or done or succeeded with so they don’t have to start from scratch.”
