PGE VOAD Reboot - 2019

Through a generous grant from PGE, in response to the Camp Fire, SF CARD received funds to support creating, rebooting, and revitalizing VOAD's in Northern California. 

The lessons learned through this project position SF CARD to support VOAD work thoughout the Northern California region.


BA UASI - Training and Exercise Program

2019 - Current

SF CARD has been acting as the Community Liaison for the Bay Area Urban Area Securities Initiative since 2019. In partnership with VOADs and training organizations such as CADRE, Eden I&R and CVNL, we have brought Preparedness, ICS, Operations, and Coordination seminars to over 200+ organizations in the 12 county region covered by BA UASI. 


The State of California’s Office of Emergency Services (CAL OES) allocated over $2 million to San Francisco nonprofit and faith-based organizations to engage and empower San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations in emergency preparedness. This funding enabled CBO’s & FBO’s to expand and strengthen peer-to-peer networks as well as deliver linguistically and culturally appropriate public awareness and outreach campaigns. 

The covid-19 pandemic created a pivot point in this programming from the wonderful "street as living room" of San Francisco and allowed us to really consider who is missing in traditional outreach.
