About North Middle Tennessee VOAD
North Middle Tennessee VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters) is an association of independent organizations that are active in all phases of disaster. This regional VOAD exists to increase Cooperation, Coordination, Communication, and Collaboration amongst organizations through all phases of the disaster cycle: preparedness, mitigation, relief, and recovery.
We are partners reliant on one another. We are committed to working together before, during and after a disaster to strengthen our community’s resiliency. Currently, the North Middle Tennessee VOAD includes Dickson, Hickman, Houston, and Humphreys Counties within Tennessee. This regional VOAD is open to other counties joining their organization.
The National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters movement started naturally with the need to serve individuals and families affected by a catastrophic event. These early NGO responders learned that by banding together, they were able to provide a quicker and more efficient response. Members of VOAD enjoy the benefits of the largest network of faith-based and nonprofit organizations focused on disaster relief and recovery in the domestic United States and US Territories.
