This study investigates the recovery efforts provided
for low income and ethnic minority populations by
organizations during the permanent housing phase of recovery
in Watsonville, California, following the Loma Prieta
earthquake of October 17, 1989. The case study format is
used to discover what activities were performed and why each
organization chose to perform them. Dynes and Quarantelli's
(1968) typology of organization is used to explain how and
why established, expanding, extending and emergent
organizations participated in the recovery efforts. The
findings indicate that the type of organization dictated the
kind of tasks each organization performed. Organizations
maintained activities during recovery for which they had
experience, expertise and proficiency.
