National VOAD is the national coordinating body for community and faith-based disaster response organizations. National VOAD Members are a distinctive group of community-based, faith-based and other nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations that have service-oriented missions and utilize volunteers in their operations.

"Being a National Member will provide new opportunities for our organization to enhance our 4C's- cooperation, communication, coordination and collaboration with our partners. The 4c's are the core principles that all VOAD members utilize to build resilient communities and provide assistance before, during and after a disaster strikes."
"Technologies that enable communications, decision-making, and situational awareness are now essential to effective emergency management,"
Humanity Road leverages technology and digital volunteers who volunteer from home to monitor and assist the public. Humanity Road synthesizes social media data into situational reports that provide early insights to disaster impacts.
