What we aim to solve

Disaster recovery is much of an untold story. News media covers a great deal of the story during the initial response in a disaster. Within a couple of weeks the media turns to other recent news leaving the impression in many minds that the disaster survivors are no longer in need. Nothing could be further from the truth. Many disasters take months to years in order to meet all the needs left in the wake of a disaster. Our project and volunteer management stays for the long term of recovery helping those with no means of recovery on their own. We continue to tell the need of the disaster survivor through our volunteer recruiting efforts, social media, and newsletters. Long term recovery needs the focus of the news media, foundations, and other funding organizations to help those engaged in long term recovery to have enough resources to serve until the last disaster survivor is served in the same way the first disaster survivor was served.

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Our goal is to provide education through social media, public speaking engagements, direct solicitation... about the need for long term recovery. We aim to provide home repair services using volunteer labor for all the disaster survivors who have no means of recovery on their own.

We produce social media content, emailed newsletters, website content, and direct solicitations to inform and engage volunteers and donors alike to partner with us in accomplishing our mission.

W provide project management that assess the home needs, delivers building materials, and provides tools and product knowledge for the volunteer team to accomplish the task. Through volunteer management we recruit and serve the volunteer team in providing the project, tools, knowledge, and housing arrangements they need in order to have a successful and effective mission.

Every disaster survivor has a scope of work created outlining the project needs. With each completed scope of work we know we are accomplishing our mission.

We are finishing the last of the 2015 spring flooding disaster projects and have some 2018 spring wildfire disaster projects in line. Over the last five years Oklahoma has continuously had disaster survivors in need of recovery.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
