COVOAD works to support its membership by facilitating planning and coordination efforts among response and recovery voluntary agencies. By working together before disasters strike, COVOAD member agencies are better positioned to provide more effective services and minimize duplication.
The core of COVOAD’s success is its commitment to facilitate and enhance what is known as the ‘4 Cs’: communication, coordination, cooperation, and collaboration.
