Welcome to the website of
Oregon Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster
Would you like to volunteer to help or to post a need during the current pandemic, or to donate goods and items? ORVOAD and the Oregon State Office of Emergency Management (OEM) are managing these needs and resources through the program below. Click on the link to set up your volunteer account to help, register your organization's needs and to donate resources.
ORVOAD is on Facebook as a resource to help meet needs.
We would like to take a moment to acknowledge that while the COVID-19 pandemic is consuming a lot of our attention, it has not stopped the violence and injustice that exists in the world, and this is very much true for the deep injustices that the black community is facing in the United States.
We stand in solidarity with our colleagues who are feeling the pain of violence and injustice in our state and in our country.
We welcome any input as to how we can ensure that ORVOAD acknowledges, listens and acts to make meaningful change around systemic racism.
The time between June and July will mark a transition of leadership for ORVOAD. Michelle and Susan are so happy to welcome Rashad Bauman as the new President of ORVOAD.
