When Disaster Strikes


Our focus during the Response Phase is on assessing ever-changing community needs and providing immediate assistance. One way we do this is through the deployment of spontaneous volunteers, who are trained and then matched to nonprofit organizations that require support.


Our focus during the Relief Phase is on providing support to those in need until they can move into the Recovery Phase. During this phase, and in collaboration with nonprofit partners, community resources are collected and dispersed based on need providing things like funds, food, and temporary shelter.


Our focus during the Recovery Phase is on rebuilding and restoring critical community functions. We continue to help coordinate the allocation of resources to maximize and sustain the recovery process and address ongoing needs. The Recovery Phase from a disaster is often prolonged.
