VIND is a coalition of faith-based organizations, partnered with allied agencies and each other, that promotes networking to prepare Volusia County, FL communities for the effects of disaster, and in the aftermath, facilitates spiritual and long-term practical aid. VIND's purpose in uniting interfaith organizations, agencies, businesses, and individuals is to minimize duplication of services and utilize resources combined with a spirit of community volunteerism to most effectively serve Volusia County.
VIND is Volusia County's long term recovery agency that assist vetted, low-income homeowners (elderly, disabled, single parent) with repairing their homes after disaster. These residents are uninsured or underinsured and once a disaster strikes, they are not able to do what is necessary to complete the repairs to their homes, subsequently they deteriorate even more.
We have recently added Replace and Relocate to our existing Repair and Rebuild initiative. This new project is geared towards residents who own disaster damaged mobile homes. We find new or "new to them" mobile homes that were manufactured no earlier than 1994, purchase them in the clients name, and place them in non-flood zone areas. Finally, we demolish the older, damaged mobile home and recycle what materials we are able to.
VIND also helps clients with spiritual, emotional, and financial recovery planning to try to eliminate the need of help to this magnitude in the future.
