Membership VOAD BANNER (1990 × 459 px)-3.png

MISSION: WV VOAD is a humanitarian association of independent organizations that may be active in all phases of disaster. Its mission is to identify unmet needs and facilitate efficient, streamlined service delivery to those imperiled or impacted by disaster while eliminating duplication of effort through cooperation in the four phases of disaster:

  • Preparation

  • Response

  • Recovery

  • Mitigation

PURPOSE: WV VOAD is not a competing or exclusionary organization. WV VOAD is intended to be a network of organizations active in disaster. Each WV VOAD member organization will maintain its own identity and independence, while closely collaborating with other WV VOAD member organizations, faith groups, and local, state, or federal authorities. WV VOAD takes no role in providing direct services. Direct services are provided by member agencies.
