CADRE – Collaborating Agenciesā€™ Disaster Relief Effort – is the VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) for Santa Clara County.Ā  We are part of the network of local, state, and national VOADs. During disasters, CADRE convenes nonprofits, faith-based and government entities to 1) Establish the current status of the emergency, 2) Connect like- organizations, 3) Develop relevant resources, and 4) Help find solutions, and 5) Give a voice to vulnerable populations in the disaster planning and relief process.
