FEMA Corps Member Testimonial

Young woman wearing a face mask reaches for another card at her desk.

“Joining FEMA Corps is the best decision I ever made. I experienced more personal and professional development during my service year than I have in my entire life.

When considering the many opportunities and gifts that the program presents, the most salient to me are that it gave me purpose and a meaningful career, friends that feel like family, and the chance to help people when they need it the most.”

- Nikki F., FEMA Corps Class 27A, Southern Region
