About Us

Nashville VOAD fosters an effective delivery of services in response to Davidson County communities affected by disaster.

Nashville VOAD is a coalition of dozens of nonprofits, community organizations, faith-based institutions, and government departments working together to ensure effective response to disasters through cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration.

Nashville VOAD’s goal is to provide knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation, mitigation, response, and recovery—to help disaster survivors in Davidson County communities.

During times of active disaster, the Nashville VOAD provides a single point of coordination for all member organizations seeking to assist survivors in our community so that needs are met in the most efficient manner possible.

Our Mission

Response

Recovery

Mitigation

Preparedness

The purpose of creating a VOAD is to strengthen area-wide disaster coordination and preparedness by sharing programs, policies, information, and engaging in joint planning, education, and training.

While we are most active in response and recovery, we participate in all four phases of disaster management: Response > Recovery > Mitigation > Preparedness.

Nashville VOAD is a member of  TN VOAD which is an affiliate of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster.

The National VOAD was founded over 50 years ago in response to the challenges many disaster organizations experienced following Hurricane Camille, a category 5 storm that hit the Gulf Coast in August, 1969.
