If there is an occurrence of a natural disaster, many communities around the country are affected. In most cases, a disaster will cause people to lose their property, such as homes, which results in stressful times for those that are affected. There exist several options to the people that have been affected by the disaster. Some of them can either live with family or friends on a temporary basis while others qualify to get rental aid.

Before GSH, Barbara used to work at Pisces and Boeing. She has experience in the contracting field and is proud to guide GSH in support of the FEMA mission as well as that of United States of America.
