What is the Connecticut VOAD?

 

 

The Connecticut VOAD is the state chapter of the National VOAD.

The VOAD consists of organizations active in disaster response throughout the state of Connecticut.

The VOAD's role is to bring organizations together and enable them to understand each other and work together during times of disaster preparedness, response, relief, and recovery.

The Connecticut VOAD adheres to the principles established by the National VOAD.  These principles are referred to as the 4C's:

Cooperation

Communication

Coordination

Collaboration

These principles serve as the foundation for the Connecticut VOAD as it collaborates with local, regional, and national partners to coordinate relief, response, and recovery efforts in times of disaster.
