VOAD Partners seek to match services to needs by recognizing the strengths and assets of each Partner organization. Rather than working competitively, VOADs strive to behave in a coordinated fashion in order to provide effective service to the impacted community.
In a disaster or emergency, CADRE seeks to coordinate member efforts through:
- Resource Coordination – identifying gaps among service providers; identifying resources that can be shared among members; identifying resources available from donations in-kind from faith-based, private and the public; publicizes needs through available means.
- Support to Continuity of Services – through the Assessment and Resource Coordination objectives; assist continuity of critical operations by community service providers
Coordination starts before disaster strikes.
Every organization, big and small, public and private have a role.
Become a CADRE partner to ensure your organization is part of the planning discussions and that your community is represented.
