COADs active within Maryland VOAD
COADs work within the State VOAD structure at the local level. This group of local community organizations works together prior to a disaster to build relationships and to assess their capacity and capabilities for responding in an effective way. During a disaster, they work cooperatively to provide coordination of services to ensure that unmet needs are addressed, that financial assistance and supplies are available, and that knowledge and resources are shared with local residents during a disaster. Maryland VOAD supports the COAD with additional resources and connections for helping them move their community to recovery.
