Volunteer Registry for Hurricanes Harvey & Irma






Thousands of volunteers have offered to assist in the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. High-level government officials have directed these generous people to National VOAD and their member agencies.

We are honored that Visionlink, as a corporate partner, has been able to open access to the unaffiliated volunteer system to National VOAD and Volunteer Florida member organizations. Due to the ongoing uncertainty of Hurricane Irma, other states will be added as necessary. This system provides several powerful functions:

1. Volunteers can identify the disaster event they would want to volunteer for.

2. Allows unaffiliated volunteers to offer their services in an organized manner and specify their location, availability period, desired area of service, special skills, and language capabilities.

3. Allows volunteers to indicate a preferred organization to volunteer with.

4. Includes a background check capability conducted by Verified Volunteers.

5. Allows agency personnel a powerful search feature to locate the types of volunteers that will support your specific mission, contact them, recruit them and identify them as "deployed" to avoid multiple contacts.


If you would like to volunteer the system is currently accessible from the following sites:

For Texas: https://txvoad.communityos.org/cms/

For Puerto Rico: https://prvoad.communityos.org/cms/

For U.S. Virgin Islands: https://usvivoad.communityos.org/cms/

These good folks have created a statewide solution that helps Hoosiers across Indiana find the local resources they need, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
