HOPE is now a member of the Washington State VOAD! In addition to being a National VOAD member, HOPE is a member of over a dozen other State and Local Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD).
The purpose of Washington Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (WAVOAD) is to bring these voluntary organizations together within the State of Washington. Together, these organizations foster more effective service to the people affected by disaster through cooperation, coordination, communication and collaboration.
Members of the Washington VOAD form a coalition of nonprofit organizations that respond to disasters as part of their overall mission.
