Abstract

In this paper we examine the issues associated with the temporary sheltering and housing of victims after natural disasters in the US. Specific topics addressed include differential access to shelter and housing aid according to social class, ethnicity and related demographic factors; the relationship between post-disaster shelter and housing and long-term recovery; the role of social support networks in the sheltering of victims; and the implications of the research for the provision of shelter and housing aid after disasters. -Authors
