The Hawaii VOAD is the state chapter of the National VOAD.
The VOAD consists of nonprofits, faith-based, and community organizations, as well as government and private sector partners that voluntarily choose to provide some form of disaster-related services throughout the state of Hawaii.
The role of Hawaii VOAD is to bring organizations together and enable them to understand each other and work together before during and after a disaster.
These principles serve as the foundation for the Hawaii VOAD as it collaborates with local, regional and national partners to coordinate disaster preparedenss, response, and recovery.
Monthly networking meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at 2:30. The meeting location rotates among member agencies.
