Building Resilient Communities advocates and provides disaster preparedness education, resources, and tools. We strive to mitigate systemic disparities that are based on climate conditions, environmental impacts, racial bias, and economic conditions that cause people to be disadvantaged and vulnerable in times of disaster.
Building Resilient Communities is headquartered in the City of Redlands and we operate across Riverside and San Bernardino counties. We provide training and resources on disaster preparedness, response and recovery to small businesses, youth, houses of worship and nonprofits. Our goal to help communities be more resilient in times of disaster. We work directly with the community through community events, live and online training workshops and social media. We collaborate with local to federal government as well as other nonprofits to provide factual information, tools, and resources where needed. We have trained over 1000 K-12th graders on disaster preparedness. We've helped hundreds of houses of worship prepare their facilities, staff and congregants so they are better prepared to help in their surrounding communities. We lead teams to help in the community when a disaster does strike. We continue to help with COVID-19 response, including distributing 100,000+ disposable face masks since 2/2022.
