image29The mission of San Diego Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (SDVOAD) is to enhance the efforts of member  organizations through interagency planning, relief, response and recovery activities, all directed toward the goal of giving area residents adequate and timely services, impartially and uniformly delivered, when a disaster strikes.

VOADs exist to foster better service by its members to communities struck by disaster. This is done through preparedness activities that include planning among VOAD members and providing education to the general public, and by responding to and helping communities recover from disaster.
