The SHOREline Project
SHOREline is a youth empowerment program that seeks to provide an opportunity to make fundamental changes in the lives of youth, their families, their communities, and beyond.
NCDP created SHOREline with the support of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation to give youth a voice—and a platform—for encouraging their own recovery and the recovery of those around them.
Are you and your family prepared to handle the next flood, wildfire or hurricane?
Explore our new Preparedness Wizard and learn more about how you and your family can stay safe during and after a disaster. It’s an easy way to start being prepared, stay safe, and stay independent.
In 2014, NCDP updated, enhanced, and re-launched this training to include functional needs based on the C-MIST framework. Upon completion of the module, participants will have a comprehensive customized personal preparedness plan with resources and templates that they can update and practice with their families.
Gulf Coast Population Impact Project
Since the Deepwater Horizon incident, there has been considerable interest on the part of policy‐makers, providers, communities, and the research community in understanding the impact of the largest offshore oil spill on human health, particularly that of children.
Our field team is currently interviewing in five communities in Louisiana. Community members or respondents who have questions or concerns can reach us at 866.795.9513.
Post-Katrina Disaster Recovery in the Gulf Coast
The Gulf Coast Child and Family Health Study (G-CAFH) is a longitudinal study of post-disaster recovery measures in the Mississippi and Louisiana Gulf Coast. Established in 2006, the cohort is comprised of 1,079 randomly selected households sampled from FEMA trailer parks, commercial trailer parks, and community venues. Respondents have been surveyed annually regarding their physical and mental health as well as social and economic indicators of recovery.
Visit the G-CAFH site to learning more about the study and its findings.
