Appendix A Workshop Statement of Task At the request of the Administration for Children and Families, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will conduct a series of three meetings exploring promising practices, ongoing challenges, and potential opportunities since Hurricane Katrina in the coordinated delivery of human and social services service programs following federally declared major natural disasters. Each workshop will focus on a different emerging topic within disaster human services. Topic areas identified for each workshop are: 1. Children and youth in disasters; 2. Populations displaced by disaster; and 3. Data and information sharing for disaster human services. Specific attention will focus on populations operating at a ­ redisaster p socioeconomic deficit and/or currently receiving government support services. All workshops will include discussions of disaster response coordina- tion and transition to reconstitution of routine service delivery programs by state, local, tribal, and territorial social services, human services, and public health agencies. Participants will also discuss current practices for the assessment and evaluation of outcomes from the aforementioned service delivery transition. An appointed ad-hoc committee will plan each of three workshops. The committee will develop the agenda for each workshop session, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions. In accor- dance with institutional guidelines, designated rapporteurs will prepare 99 PREPUBLICATION COPY—Uncorrected Proofs

To explore issues related to the effects of disasters on children and youth and lessons learned from experiences during previous disasters, the virtual workshop From Hurricane Katrina to Paradise Wildfires, Exploring Themes in Disaster Human Services was convened on July 22 and 23, 2020, by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The workshop was designed to focus on families engaged with federal, state or local supportive programs prior to disasters. Additional areas of focus were the coordination of disaster response efforts and the transition to reestablishing routine service delivery programs post-disaster by human services, social services, and public health agencies at the state, local, tribal, and territorial levels. The workshop was also intended to provide a platform for highlighting promising practices, ongoing challenges, and potential opportunities for coordinated delivery and restoration of social and human services programs. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussion of the workshop.
