Disaster Resources for Nonprofits

NAO is working continuously to get disaster-related information and resources into the hands of Oregon nonprofits. Those resources are brought together here for easy access. A new day has dawned, and we must all be prepared for disaster planning, response and recovery in our work and in our lives. A BIG thank you to our members, funders and sponsors who continue to support NAO in our mission and service through these disasters and beyond. We are stronger together.
