Welcome to the Illinois VOAD - Your Volunteer Disaster Resource



The Illinois VOAD (Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster) is the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation, response and recovery—to help disaster survivors and their communities.



Members of the Illinois VOAD form a coalition of nonprofit organizations that respond to disasters as part of their overall mission.
