Disaster Cycle Services (DCS) Mission Adaptation Program Update
Anne Palmer, Executive Director, Operations Policy & Mission Adaptation

Tens of millions of families throughout the U.S., many of whom are facing the threat of poverty, are at risk of being forced from their homes due to an increasing number of extreme weather disasters.  Tragically, the rapidly accelerating pace of climate displacement is having a disproportionate impact on our most vulnerable communities that lack the resources needed to cope.  As the nation's largest provider of emergency sheltering, Red Cross knows that extreme weather events exacerbate existing societal challenges - such as food insecurity, health care access, and the conditions and availability of housing. These 3Hs - Hunger, Health, and Housing - are the focus of the Mission Adaption Program (MAP).  MAP is being launched to provide jurisdiction-wide support in eight counties/parishes across the country selected for social vulnerability and natural hazard risk factors.

Anne Palmer  joined the American Red Cross’ Disaster Cycles Services team in 2007 and currently serves as the Executive Director of Operations Policy & Mission Adaptation.   Anne leads the development and execution of strategic operations policy and operational mission adaptation due to climate change and the increasing needs of vulnerable populations across the United States.
