Providing Services to Vulnerable Populations – Equitable Disaster Recovery Strategies for Leaders of Nonprofit Organizations
May 16 , 12:00 pm EDT – 4:00 pm EDT
Join NCRC’s National Training Academy (NTA) for this webinar that will discuss concepts to assist nonprofit leaders as they work with emergency management and other community service providers post-disaster.
Post-crisis impacted residents and community stakeholders require a myriad of resources to return to predisaster normalcy. Post-disaster is critical for agencies to get back to business and provide programs and resources. This requires a well-crafted plan that may include community grass root organizations, alternate program delivery and outreach methods or temporary service sites. There are however other roles a prepared agency could play in the road to recovery. During this webinar, we will discuss concepts to assist nonprofit leaders as they work with emergency management and other community service providers, post-disaster. Through careful preparation and strategic relationship building with other stakeholders, nonprofit leaders are in a pivotal position to reach the most vulnerable residents and provide resources to help them recover from a crisis.
We will explore how nonprofit leaders can position their organization to support the delivery of inclusive and equitable services and empower and strengthen capabilities of their communities to address disaster-caused unmet needs.
- Networking and organizing goods, programs and services to reach a broad and diverse group of residents.
- Building relationships with the right stakeholders pre-disaster – before the crisis impacts your service area to create as seamless return to providing services as possible.
- Identifying post-crisis needs in your community and determining what solutions are within the capacity of your agency or potential partners to work with to meet needs.
- Strategies for community engagement to ensure no resident is left out of the recovery process
