Welcome to Colorado VOAD!



Colorado Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (COVOAD) is the Colorado state chapter of National Voluntary Agencies Active in Disasters (NVOAD). It consists of organizations active in disaster response throughout the state of Colorado. COVOAD's role is to bring organizations together, enable them to understand each other and work together in a cohesive manner. To accomplish these goals, COVOAD meets with its member organizations several times each year to share information and training opportunities. These meetings also provide the opportunity to conduct business, plan, network, and provide updates on current disaster relief efforts.

COVOAD Responds to Wildfires & Flash Floods Summer of 2013



 "After a tornado ripped through Windsor and parts of Weld County, COVOAD member agencies stepped in to meet a host of critical community needs, including sheltering, mass feeding, donations management, volunteer coordination, crisis counseling, case management and call center operations. I encourage all emergency managers to build strong working relationships with their non-profit and voluntary agency partners.  The investment will result in stronger, more resilient communities."

Roy Rudisill, Director, Weld County Emergency Management
