As a healthcare professional, you know the importance of quality care. During times of disaster, affected families in our shelters need access to basic healthcare. This is only possible through volunteers like you. Train now and bring quality care to those who need it the most!

Interested in deploying as a licensed provider to areas of disaster. This includes health services and mental health providers (RN, MD, LPN, NP, LCSW). This is a 10-day deployment.
