The Disaster Rebuild team is comprised of RV Care-A-Vanners who have received Disaster Corps training and can be deployed in the recovery phase of a disaster to assist affiliates as house leaders during their rebuilding efforts.
The first training commenced in Americus, Ga., in March of 2013. Thirty participants engaged in a four-day curriculum that focused on emergency management and construction site supervision.
Leveraging RV Care-A-Vanners’ significant experience as house leaders, their skills and talents can be used in disaster situations to provide a greater impact for disaster-affected affiliates.
If you are an RV Care-A-Vanner and interested in joining the Disaster Rebuild team, please contact Mary Vandeveld at MVandeveld@habitat.org .
