The Disaster Response Office of Habitat for Humanity International recently rolled out its newest program, the Disaster Corps. The program seeks to provide increased support for disaster affected Habitat affiliates by engaging baby boomer generation volunteers with professional and skilled backgrounds. Ì¢‰âÒWe’re trying to engage volunteers to helpÌ¢‰âÂå_in more internal rolesÌ¢‰â‰۝helping to build a strong volunteer/donor database, meeting administrative needs, participating in project management, financial management and strategic planning,Ì¢‰âÂå said Jennifer O’Donnell, Habitat’s Disaster Response external relations specialist. At the end of the two-week program graduates, called Disaster Corps Legacy Leaders, are placed with a US Gulf Coast Habitat affiliate for two to four weeks, assisting with local short and long-term needs.
