Why Should You Attend?
Each day our agencies provide a variety of assistance to our community, but when a disaster strikes many more families in the community will need our assistance in their recovery. For us to provide the needed services in a timely and effective manner we have to know each other, understand the role each of our organizations plays in the recovery, and how we can support each other as we provide services to the community.

Alameda County VOAD
Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) is a humanitarian association of independent voluntary organizations active in emergency disaster relief. National VOAD (www.nvoad.org) was founded in 1970 with the purpose of coordinating relief efforts between voluntary agencies, faith based groups, and government organizations involved in disaster response. The mission of VOAD is to provide efficient services to all disaster victims and eliminate the duplications of services. VOAD is organized on a national, state and county basis to help meet emergency needs.
AlCoVOAD is the Alameda County component of the VOAD movement.
