Our Disaster Volunteers Response program provides an avenue for the public to help with relief and recovery efforts after a catastrophic event. Following a local emergency or regional disaster, we work with:
- Volunteers (typically those not previously affiliated with an activated agency, such as the American Red Cross)
- Nonprofit organizations in Allen County
- Fort Wayne and Allen County governments
Our goal is to match community members who emerge and want to help with recovery efforts to the nonprofit organizations and public agencies that need help. Depending upon the resources available to us following a local disaster, we’ll share that information via the Internet, telephone or a walk-in center. You can support this important program today by becoming a Disaster Volunteer!
