Residential shelter claim examples
A fire breaks out as a result of cooking in the common kitchen area of a residential shelter, which results in extensive smoke and heat damage to both the building and its contents, and forces the residential shelter's administration to seek an alternative facility for a period of one month. The organization suffers a loss of $75,000 in property damage and extra expenses.

Holly is a staff member working for a residential shelter that provides mentoring. While Holly is driving a volunteer for a visit to the supply office she fails to yield at a stop sign and strikes another vehicle.
