Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD)
What is VC-VOAD?
VC-VOAD is a collaborative of local non-profit agencies, faith-based organizations, volunteer groups, public institutions, and private entities dedicated to improving outcomes for people affected by disasters. VC-VOAD helps communities respond to and recover from major disasters by facilitating cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration.
How does VC-VOAD benefit my community and me?
We meet on a quarterly basis to discuss best practices to be prepared to assist our community in the event of a disaster. We are not only active during disasters but provide support during all phases of disaster - preparedness, and disaster mitigation as well as recovery.
