Utah VOAD: About Us



The  purpose of the Utah Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (UT  VOAD) is to bring together voluntary organizations active in disaster to  foster effective, congruent response in times of disaster.  Utah VOAD  seeks to ensure the availability of needed services and to encourage  uniform, impartial provision of these disaster response services. We  share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation,  response and recovery—to help disaster survivors and their communities.   

Members of Utah VOAD form a coalition of nonprofit and faith based  organizations that respond to disasters as part of their overall  mission. Together we foster more effective service through the four  C’s—communication, coordination, cooperation and collaboration—by  providing convening mechanisms and outreach for all people and  organizations involved in disasters.

Utah VOAD is a statewide  umbrella organization comprised of existing voluntary agencies that may be active in any part of the disaster cycle (Prepare, Mitigate, Respond, Recover).  Each member agency retains its own identity and  independence.
