National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD)

Daily Point of Light # 4749 Apr 20, 2012

National VOAD is a nonpartisan, nonprofit association dedicated to be the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle – preparation, response and recovery – to help disaster survivors and their communities. The organization partnered with Points of Light and HandsOn Network at the 2012 National Conference on Volunteering and Service as part of the Get HandsOn campaign and as a national presenter with the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes. National VOAD has been instrumental in collaborating and connecting resources and partners with HandsOn Network during times of response and recovery. In addition, National VOAD participated in A Billion + Change’s disaster session focused on corporations with skills-based volunteering programs focused on disaster. This year, National VOAD will partner with Points of Light on the disaster track at the 2012 National Conference on Volunteering and Service, and provides ongoing support for emergency preparedness programming.
