Orange County Disaster Volunteer MGMT VISTA
Orange County Disaster Rebuild Volunteer MGMT VISTA
About the organization
Orange County Disaster Rebuild’s mission is to assist individuals and families who have unmet needs with recovery from any natural or man-made disasters. Orange County is located in the very southeastern corner of Texas, bordering Louisiana in the area known as the Golden Triangle of Texas. According to the US Census, Orange County has a population of approximately 85,047. Approximately, 75% of Orange County was affected in Hurricane Harvey. Our goal is to provide additional long-term assistance to individuals affected by disasters starting with the most vulnerable population low income, elderly, disabled, single parents. Research shows that natural disasters disproportionality impact poor and marginalized communities and that those living in poverty struggle the most to recover. We are working to offer recovery assistance to all individuals, families and communities more effectively and efficiently until recovery is completed.
Serve with the Orange County Disaster Long Term Recovery team to create sustainable volunteer recruitment and coordination strategies. Develop tracking and volunteer deployment procedures to assign volunteers on proper projects aiding disaster affected low income individuals, families, and under-resourced communities. The VISTA will also develop a year-round calendar of rebuild activities requiring volunteer resources. Additionally, the VISTA will create strategies to build partnerships across recovery organizations from various counties to share best practices and resources for disaster preparedness. To help with preparedness and resiliency of Texas communities, Orange County Long Term Recovery is searching for a motivated individual to help develop volunteer management and recruitment methods.
