Abstract

On a peaceful Tuesday afternoon, fifty seconds of shaking resulted in
the death of 230,000 people and left 1.5 million more homeless. On
January 12th, 2010, at 4:53 PM, an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the
Richter Scale struck just 10 miles from the Haitian capital of Port-au-
Prince, devastating an already fragile nation. With 80% of the
country’s population living below the poverty line prior to the
earthquake, the scale of response necessary afterward was massive.
During a four-week data collection trip in Haiti, and follow-up
interviews in the United States, 18 different agencies responding to the
Haiti disaster were interviewed and 73 unique agency partnerships
documented. Trends in resource flow, incompatible perspectives on
partnership permanence, commitment level increases, and contact
utilization provide a new perspective on how responding agencies can
best leverage their resources in a disaster.
