.......... ........ " " PA E v unRy Recovery after disaster The Family Financial Toolkit & Video Series A natural disaster can strike anywhere at any time, in any form, leaving in its wake dam- age and destruction that affects the financial well-being of survi- vors. Disaster survivors may be in disbelief, yet anxious to start to put the pieces back together. Resources are available to help survivors take steps toward finan- cial recovery. The "Recovery After Disaster: The Family Financial Toolkit" discusses strategies and provides tools that can help disaster survi- vors move along the road towards financial recovery. The tools are designed to help families make decisions that are best for their family. Key strategies include documenting important details as well as documenting loss and damaged property for use with insurance claims and to claim property loss on income taxes. In addition, the Toolkit helps survi- vors assess their financial situa- tion and start to make plans for long-term recovery. Tools are also available to assess short-term and long-term housing options and review the possible assistance and resources that may be avail- able for homeowners and renters. The Toolkit is designed so that those financially impacted by a disaster can utilize the individual units or use the entire toolkit as their situa- tion requires.

You'll be surprised to learn about our local businesses and how much they contribute to our communities! _Owner: Scan Schlangen Founded: June 18, 1995, Scan purchased two lots and opened on the current site with two employees. With their customer base expanding, they continued to add on; the current building has had five additions to accommodate business growth. Our Employees: 28 full-time and two part- time employees. What do we do? Ninety-five percent of our business is related to residential homes and the other 5 percent is commercial business. We do just about any cabinetry that can be created from wood. The changes in this industry with machines and computer technology have come so far in accuracy, speed, and quality without losing the craftsmanship of each piece. The Sean Schlangen started his business in1995 with just two employees. fin(shes of our cabinets today sometimes go They now have 28 full-time and two part-time employees. through a process 6-8 times before they are completed. Kitchens are now about entertaining; there are 17 choices of wood alone, and the accessories and additions to every project are unique. Our craftsmen build any piece of cabinetry needed that our customers are looking for. What sets us apart: I took some advice given me when I first began my business: "Someone upstairs gave you two ears and one mouth; listen to your customers." So, I listen, and do what they ask in a cost- effective way that satisfies what my customers' expectations are, and meets their needs. We have great, dedicated employees who have been here for many years. This experience shows in the exceptional quality of the products and customer service we provide. With that said, our employees are the reason Schlangen's Custom Cabinets is as successful as we are. Our customers: The local communities have been so very good to us, both residential and commercial. They continue to come back, and word-of-mouth still goes a long way. We go out regularly in a 60-mile radius and have made cabinets that have gone to seven states other than Minnesota. Community involvement: We try to support as much as possible in our community schools and city events with monetary donations and gifts. I am a Lions and Sportsman's Club member, and Schlangen's Custom Cabinets is a member of the Eden Valley Chamber of Commerce, CMBA, NAHB, NFIB, and the Crow River Builders Association. We continue to support the local newspapers in Paynesville, Eden Valley, Litchfield, Cold Spring, and Kimball because they keep us updated on our community and the communities around me, local and friends' children, and relatives' children - whether it be school-related or sports activities - and updating me on city information.
