Members of the Maine VOAD form a coalition of nonprofit organizations that respond to disasters as part of their overall mission. Faith based, civic, and for-profit groups round out this network of partners.

Vegas Strong Resiliency Center
Following the mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas on Oct. 1, 2017, representatives of State, Federal, and local organizations developed a response program to a resource hub for anyone who is struggling with traumatic effects from the shooting- the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. As I’m sure you’re aware the population affected by this event was unique in both the total of individuals potentially impacted but also by the geographic diversity of the population. Approximately 22,000 people were in attendance at the Route 91 Harvest festival when the shooting occurred on Oct. 1, and the vast majority of concert attendees have gone home to the states and cities where they reside. Our support is requested as part of an outreach effort to make service providers who come in contact with survivors of the shooting aware of the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center as an important first point of contact to a number of various support programs.
