NYC Citizen Corps is hosting a "VOAD 101" information session for participants in Long Term Recovery Groups. Learn more about NYCVOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) and how Long Term Recovery Groups can get involved.
The mission of the NYCVOAD is to strengthen the capabilities of organizations working together to relieve human suffering caused by disaster. NYCVOAD is a membership-based organization composed of nonprofits, private entities, and government agencies in New York City, which have human services roles in disaster preparedness, response, relief, recovery, and mitigation. NYCVOAD is a local unit of the national organization and supports the national mission on a local level.
Speakers from the NYCVOAD Executive Committee will discuss VOAD structure, membership, and operations as well as potential for collaboration with long term recovery groups.
All the best,
NYC Citizen Corps
