About Idaho VOAD

Idaho VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters) is the state chapter of National VOAD and consists of organizations active in disaster response throughout the state of Idaho. VOAD's role is to bring organizations together and enable them to understand each other and work together during times of disaster preparedness, response, relief and recovery. Idaho VOAD adheres to the principles established by National VOAD.

The principles are referred to as the 4C's:

  • Cooperation
  • Communication
  • Coordination
  • Collaboration

These principles serve as the foundation for Idaho VOAD as it collaborates with local, regional and national partners to coordinate relief, response and recovery efforts in times of disaster. Our bylaws explain how our organization pursues these principles.
