Recommend a Team Member

We help communities who ask for our help but we know that the people with boots on the ground have front row seats to identify the community members who are all in. Those go-to people are the ones who can help others get through to the other side of recovery. Let us know if you know someone in a community that would make a great team member.

Meet Our Volunteers

With experiences ranging from small communities to large cities, we are prepared to assist community leaders new to disaster and help them to address the everyday frustrations and roadblocks that are present when disaster strikes. We want to provide guidance so communities experiencing disasters do not have to do it on their own.

Volunteer Testimonials

Our team strives to reduce the length of a community’s recovery from natural disaster by providing direct mentorship for local community leaders. We work with ‘new to disaster’ community leaders to support them emotionally and share experiences and knowledge, including toolkits and resources. We want to make it easier and less stressful for community leaders and build resiliency into their long-term recovery organization for the next disaster.

Tell us about a community leader you know who would be a great team member or if you know a community struggling to pull it together following disaster. We are here to help.
