Title Summer 2012 Colorado Wildfire Non-Profit Sector Case Study.
Publication Date Nov 2012
Media Count 36p
Personal Author E. DiPaolo
Abstract This Case Study provides observations and recommendations on the work that the non-profit and faith-based organizations carry out during disaster response, relief, and recovery efforts. Many of these organizations such as the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, and the Southern Baptists Convention are included in local emergency response plans and have a disaster mandate as part of their charter. But, many charitable organizations jump in during a disaster because their humanitarian mission compels them to do so. This case study demonstrates the huge contribution that these non-profits bring to response, relief, and recovery. The estimated dollar value in resources and assistance that these efforts add to a community is in the tens of millions of dollars. These efforts provide essential services that cannot be provided by the local, state and federal governments.
