"Empowering communities affected by natural disasters"
We were brought together by tragedy but kept together by compassion and an intense motivation to empower communities affected by natural disasters. We are entrepreneurs, business owners, veterans, educators, medical professionals and emergency responders that harness the power of our diverse backgrounds to make disaster relief happen in new and innovative ways.
Currently, we have built OpenWorld Relief into a fully functioning 501(c)3 that has developed a broad spectrum approach to disaster relief that encompassas everything from SAR (Search & Rescue) phase through long term recovery. Additionally, we are continually identifing other groups that have been operating successfully on their own, of which, we add to the OpenWorld team or form partnerships with to streamline the efforts for all aspects of disaster relief and recovery.
