Advocate

 

With our focus on communities that have been impacted by disaster, the Disaster Services Corporation plays a key role in advocating for those that have no voice. Without grass roots local community support, our priorities in systemic change and basic recovery for those that are suffering from a disaster will lose all footing. We are 95% voluntary based and our volunteers are the backbone of our organization. 

Please consider joining us and advocate for long term recovery. The Disaster Services Corporation arrives on site in a disaster zone when all the dust has settled, the first responders have left, all the camera crews, and news journalists have moved on to the next big event. We stay with the community until the recovery is complete and sometimes that translates into several years. We need your help, your community needs your help, and you can have a direct impact in improving the lives of many. 

You can advocate for your community by partipating at the local level with becoming an active member of your local SVDP conference and council, joining the local VOAD or COAD, and getting to know your local FEMA and American Red Cross partners. Please contact our office if you are interested in learning more about advocating on behalf of the Disaster Services Corporation, SVDP-USA.
