For those impacted by disaster, the sudden and profound loss of ‘normalcy’ can disrupt everything and turn their world upside down. That’s why we believe chaplains serve a vital role in providing spiritual care when disaster strikes.
Spiritual care in a disaster includes assisting individuals, families, or communities in drawing upon spiritual perspectives as a source of strength, hope, and healing.
I.F.O.C. became a member of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) to connect with the nation’s most reputable national deployment organizations. This allows us to share knowledge and coordinate resources throughout the disaster cycle of preparation, response, and recovery.
