Carolinas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters
North Carolina and South Carolina VOAD is a coalition of nonprofit organizations that respond to disasters as part of their mission. The Carolina’s VOAD is a statewide body that facilitates cooperation, communication, coordination and collaboration of member organizations in all phases of disaster and that maximizes member impact. VOAD is the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation, response, recovery —to help disaster survivors and their communities. As members of VOAD in the Carolinas, we coordinate our network’s resources to assist the states in disaster response and recovery.
