This program was created in 2012 in response to Hurricane Sandy. At the time, the program focused on sharing real-time resources and volunteer opportunities for our Members to serve our community. The efforts were coordinated by Emma K. Viglucci, with the assistance of Dana Galante. The effort also included coordinating giving Disaster Mental Health Talks in the community. Materials were created to assist in this endeavor. The Program is now part of the Opportunities & Mentoring Division of our Network, directed by Emma K. Viglucci, and it is currently inactive but is to be activated as deemed necessary in the event of a disaster.
