Helping neighbors weather the storm
Because every family deserves a safe, secure, & sanitary home. We do that through preparation and mitigation programs.
Disaster Resiliency is an initiative that focuses on preparing our community for any natural or man-made disasters.
Strategies for Support:
Preparing funds for an early response, making sure money is already available before a disaster hits so that volunteers can start relief operations immediately.
Preparing partners for early action is about financing activities ahead of a disaster so that they are prepared before the shock, mitigating the impact of disaster on the population.
Protecting the most vulnerable is a way for individuals to be protected against losses that are induced by disasters.
