Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster

San Luis Obispo County


Our Mission

When disasters strike, lives, homes, communities, and businesses may be damaged or destroyed. Those affected often need substantial short-term and long-term support to put their lives back together.  Community organizations, working in coordination with governmental first responders, provide vital assistance. 

We promote communication, cooperation, coordination, and collaboration among community organizations, faith-based groups, and government agencies with the goal of streamlining service delivery to people affected by disasters while eliminating unnecessary duplication of effort.
