CVNL Proudly hosts COAD and VOAD volunteer opportunities on the CVNL volunteer matching portal for Napa, Marin, Solano and Sonoma counties. See current opportunities below.
Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COADs) work within the State/Territory VOAD structure at the local level. This group of local community organizations work together during a disaster to provide coordination of services to ensure that unmet needs are addressed, provide financial assistance and supplies, and to share knowledge and resources with local residents during a disaster.
A VOAD is a community organization made up of public, private, volunteer and nonprofit agencies and organizations who may be active in all phases of disaster: preparation, response, recovery and mitigation. A VOAD enhances the ability for all communities involved to mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.
Learn more about your local county COAD or VOAD below.
Volunteer opportunities will be posted as they arise. If you cannot find a place to volunteer at this time, we ask that you please be patient. Thank you for your willingness to serve our community!
