Manual from National Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD)
posted almost 4 years ago by lizaloop from LO*OP Center, Inc.
To All Sonoma County groups working with volunteers:
The County of Sonoma is setting up a local branch of VOAD with the help of the national organization. We (sonomacounty.recovers.org) need to stay coordinated with our VOAD. Here is a link to their LONG TERM RECOVERY GUIDE.
Please use it both to help within your own organization and to learn how the official county VOAD will function. I've volunteered for the Executive Committee of the Sonoma County VOAD but I don't know the outcome yet. Please join me in the effort to ensure that Sonoma County VOAD and sonomacounty.recovers.org are closely coordinated and neither compete not duplicate efforts. We are one community in spite of the fact that private, spontaneous groups can sometimes act more nimbly than government and government-related agencies.
