Disaster Resiliency is an initiative that focuses on preparing our community for any natural or man-made disaster and providing assistance to our most vulnerable communities. Be it hurricane, tornado, or even pandemic we are ready for action. Black River United Way serves as a leader in disaster recovery, preparedness, and mitigation.

Our strategies to this work are centered around:

  • Efficiently managing volunteers in times of active disaster and non-active phases
  • Establishing resiliency goals for counties and more through our state-recognized Community Organizations Active in Disaster (C.O.A.D.)
  • Providing access and resources for disaster preparedness education to the community
  • Connecting families and communities to mitigation assistance so that they are more resilient against natural disasters.
