Victim Relief is a humanitarian, non-profit corporation organized in the State of Texas and qualified as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
The organization provides nationwide delivery of food, water, clothing, and furniture and the manpower support and services for the victims of disasters. We follow the well-known model of the Good Samaritan to work together with affected communities to ease the pain and suffering of victims in crisis.
Victim Relief consists of Teams of volunteers from around the country, who work with other victim service organizations, including Homeland Security, Red Cross, VOAD (Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters), Salvation Army, and other first responders in disaster relief, law enforcement, fire and rescue, health and trauma resources, and transportation centers, creating effective partnerships to meet the daily physical and emotional needs of victims.
Our newest partner is a developing humanitarian organization, which is working to solicit, transport, and processes donations of food, water, clothing, furniture, and household supplies on a national level that are maintained in regional warehouses and waiting for delivery (along with cash contributions) within 12 hours to virtually any disaster site in the continental United States.
All Victim Relief volunteers are required to wear the specified uniforms and adhere to the standards and policies promulgated by the national office. The national headquarters of Victim Relief provides organizational, training, and support services to its volunteers, including the following:
- Networking with other first responder organizations on a national level to coordinate the best use of resources in the most expeditious manner.
- Networking with state and national organizations and associations in support of donations of materials, supplies, and funding, and as a source of volunteers.
- Training programs and systems for training of volunteers in the operations, policies, and procedures of Victim Relief.
