Unmet Needs Roundtables
Since 9/11, NYDIS has convened all Unmet Needs Roundtables (UNR) in NYC. The UNR is a multi-agency collaborative, including donors, case management, legal aid, volunteer rebuild, and long-term recovery groups. The UNR utilizes diverse networks of city-wide and neighborhood-based disaster case management or legal aid agencies to meet the needs of any and all New Yorkers, with a focus on the most vulnerable and under-resourced households. An advisory board offers guidance on identifying resources for emerging unmet needs, overseeing the UNR process, and supporting the staff’s work.
