IN SUMMARY. The purpose and mission of the Utah Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (UVOAD) is to bring together voluntary organizations active in disaster to foster an 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. UVOAD shares knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation, response and recovery—especially to help disaster survivors and their communities.
Members of UVOAD form a coalition of nonprofit and faith based organizations and government organizations that respond to disasters as part of their overall mission. Together UVOAD fosters 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.
UVOAD 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.
