Disaster, Crisis, Outreach and Referral Team

What is DCORT?

York/Adams MH-IDD Program provides assistance for a basic behavioral response to an all hazard incident or support service during a crisis, disaster or for an incident with the potential of causing emotional trauma to the public. Our Disaster Crisis Outreach Referral Team (DCORT) is tasked with this responsibility.

DCORT's mission is to assist those individuals who have been impacted by a crisis or disaster by providing emotional support and therapeutic activities to ease stress, foster a compassionate presence and to aid in community resliience.

To make a referral, contact our DCORT coordinator at DTorres-Cruz@yorkcountypa.gov or call 717-771-9618. You can also call the York County Office of Emergency Management at 717-840-2990. If you're interested in volunteering, contact our DCORT coordinator.
