Emergency Social Services (ESS) is a provincially mandated program that is implemented on the municipal level and is activated post disaster to take care of displaced people by providing basic necessities and emergency sheltering. The purpose of this project was to adapt the City of Vancouver’s ESS program to better meet the needs of people with access and functional needs (PAFN) after a disaster.
