COHI organized a successful response to the tornadoes in 2013. COHI focused our emergency efforts on supporting women and infants by securing supplies to provide dignity kits to women (menstrual hygiene products, bras, underwear, and flashlights), diapers, and infant feeding formula for the babies. COHI conducted a needs assessment to determine the long-terms needs in the region relating to women's health and safety, and turned over the findings to a locally-based agency with recommendations for implementation.
