ABSTRACT

This study aims to explore the role of community welfare centers in terms of improving community disaster resilience (CDR) which is the concept of emphasizing the disaster response capacity of communities. The research conducted the survey to examine the perceptions of social workers on the performance level of traditional services by community welfare center and the importance of CDR-related social welfare services using the IPA analysis. The survey results revealed that the importance of both traditional and proposed CDR-related services is more highly regarded than their performance(p<.001). Also, most of traditional and CDR-related services in community welfare centers are allocated in the “Keep up the Good Work” areas with high importance and performance. The results of this study recommend three roles of community welfare centers for CDR improvement; the meditator, the encourager and the sustainable hazard manager.
