How is VOAD Organized in California?
Due to its size and geography, California is home to two regional VOAD associations—NorCal VOAD and SoCal VOAD—and numerous local VOAD associations. Each strives to include all the nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and for-profit companies that provide or coordinate disaster-related services in its operational area. A VOAD association enables its members to share information and coordinate the deployment of resources to improve outcomes for people affected disasters.
