The Indiana VOAD is the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle - preparation, response, and recovery - to help disaster survivors and their communities.
The purpose of this network shall be to bring together voluntary organizations and community organizations active in disaster services to foster more effective response and recovery to the people of Indiana in times of disaster through communication, coordination, cooperation, collaboration, convening mechanisms, education and outreach.
Indiana VOAD seeks to ensure the availability of needed services and to encourage uniform impartial provision of these services.
The Indiana VOAD is not a response organization, leaving the response aspect of disaster to its member organizations.
Members of the Indiana VOAD form a coalition of nonprofit organizations that encompass disasters response and recovery as part of their overall mission.
