Having difficulty postings or have questions, contact us at disaster@OneOC.org.

Our Virtual Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) is currently accepting disaster-related projects. We are focused on matching volunteers to your organizational needs based on required skills, geography and availability in order to maximize volunteer support and disaster recovery efforts.

Organizations can post projects and or needs that will connect volunteers to your specific disaster-recovery efforts. Through our virtual Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC), volunteers can actively "Sign-up" for your current opportunities.

We accept volunteer needs from 501c3 nonprofit organizations, schools and government agencies. We cannot accept volunteer requests to support individual needs or requests from for-profit entities. (For requests to support individual needs or for-profit entities, we recommend contacting Orange County 2-1-1, Orange County's information resource line).

If you have additional questions contact disaster@OneOC.org  or 714-597-8952 and we will respond as soon as possible.

 

Please Keep in Mind...

  • Organizations must register as a member before you can post projects or we can refer volunteers.
  • Any assigned volunteer opportunity will not involve first-responder activity or put volunteers at-risk.
  • Volunteer assignments will be made based on identified needs in the community and the ability to address these needs in a safe, organized and effective manner.
  • Assistance will be needed mostly during the recovery period.
  • Volunteers are often most valuable in the days, weeks and months following the disaster.
  • We will provide safety guidelines and volunteer management best practices for working with volunteers in a disaster situation.
  • We cannot guarantee that all volunteer requests will be filled.
