This week, NECHAMA staff are in Providence, RI for the 2018 National VOAD Conference. Since it’s founding in 1970, National VOAD Member organizations have worked tirelessly to assist communities affected by disasters. Over the past 44 years, the VOAD movement has grown to include more than 100 Member organizations.

Guided by the core principles of the 4Cs — cooperation, communication, coordination, and collaboration — National VOAD Members provide the leadership that builds strong, resilient communities and delivers hope in times of need.

National VOAD members include many organizations NECHAMA has worked hand-in-hand with over the last 25 years, and continue to work with to this day.
