This page is for those wishing to learn more about events and opportunities related to the coordination of voluntary efforts and donations management before, during, and after disasters.
There are various ways to learn about events and opportunites related to your geographic or topical area of interest.
Connect with others regarding your geographic or topical area of interest, such as your local or state emergency management agency, Regional Voluntary Agency Liaison, and additional organizations and networks. Organizations often promote events and opportunities for their community of interest via their website and social media accounts.
For example, the ADA National Network and FEMA have partnered to deliver a monthly webinar series: Emergency Management and Preparedness-Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities. The webinar schedule and descriptions are available online.
Sign-up for informational emails, such as alerts during disasters in your state, FEMA's External Affairs Bulletin (weekly updates archived online), FEMA Voluntary Agency Liaison Community Engagement Updates, and additonal FEMA email subscriptions.
The Voluntary Agency Liaison mission is to establish, foster, and maintain relationships among government, voluntary, faith-based, and community partners to strengthen capabilities and support the delivery of inclusive, equitable services by empowering communities to address disaster-related unmet needs.
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
