The Disaster Services Corporation Helps Americans Rebuild their Lives through Systemic Change

As many as 4.7 million Americans have registered for FEMA aide this year alone. Hard working Americans do not earn enough money to meet their basic needs after a disaster event impacts their home and community. Disasters can place middle income families in an economic hardship, unable to recover financially to move forward or rebuild savings. Often times it's our middle class that does not ask for help or know how to seek for it. In a way it's this subgroup that may struggle the most in the recovery phase. The Disaster Services Corporation is here to help and offer hope. 

How You Can Help

Vincentians and outside partnerships make the Disaster Services Corporation, SVDP-USA programs possible. We need your help in fundraising, advocating, volunteering your in-kind support to keep these programs alive and thriving. Programs like our House in a Box®, Economic Recovery, Micro-lending for small business and workforce development, and funding support for the unmet needs tables that support the long term recovery groups within communities. Please contact our office if you have interest in supporting our programs or submit your information in our Volunteer Interest Webform


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 participating 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.
