Be Prepared When Disaster Strikes!

The Human Services Council wants all human service providers to be prepared to respond to their clients’ needs during an emergency or disaster. That’s why we created New York City’s Human Services Alert – HSAlert.

Please sign up for the free HSAlert emergency communication system below so we can provide you timely, relevant, human service-specific updates whenever an emergency occurs.

You do not have to be a HSC member to sign up – the alert is for all Human Service nonprofits!

More About the HSAlert System

This alert system was set up after Hurricane Sandy, when many service providers – and other New Yorkers – lost power and internet access. Its aim was to ensure that in the future human service organizations will be able to receive vital information about disaster relief, available resources, and ways to coordinate with others to help our clients and communities.

Sign up above to receive information during disasters regarding:

  • Service needs after a disaster
  • Funding opportunities when disasters strikes
  • Coordination with government agencies and other nonprofit
