It may take days or weeks after a disaster strikes to sort out
the true needs of the community, so please be patient.


  • Do not go to the scene of a disaster to offer help – unexpected volunteers interfere with response efforts and may put individuals at risk in unsafe areas.
  • Organizational or group volunteers with training are needed most in the days and weeks after a disaster strikes – inquire with your house of worship or local community organization to coordinate volunteer efforts.
  • If you are not affiliated with a voluntary organization, there are opportunities to volunteer with one of our partner organizations.

Please click on the appropriate link below to register to volunteer with one of our partner organizations as an individual or group:
