Disasters come in many forms, from acts of nature such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes to individual and personal crisis. Following a disaster, Volunteers of America seeks to help people get their lives back together.
From clearing rubble after a storm, repairing the home of a disabled veteran, to building a wheelchair ramp for a stroke victim, Volunteers of America seeks to respond with our time, energy, and resources. Our response is made possible through volunteers, donations, and partner organizations.
