Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD)

There are organizations which can benefit from your C.E.R.T. training that need you as a volunteer! Find your passion within an affiliated partner for disaster response.

Each faith-based organization has a disaster response ministry and the major disaster support organizations such as Red Cross, Salvation Army, and Habitat for Humanity, etc, always need volunteers. If, or when a disaster strikes, spontaneous unaffiliated volunteers that want to assist will have delays and processing issues that volunteers already affiliated with a recognized organization will not have to go through. The other important point is that those volunteers affiliated with a recognized disaster response volunteer organization will have a pre-designated role and training specifically designed for that role.

Do not delay! Find your affiliation and join up with a disaster partner organization!
