CADRE (Collaborating Agencies' Disaster Relief Effort) is a leading network of organizations that provide community services that are essential in times of disaster.
CADRE coordinates organizational preparedness planning in non-disaster times and activates to respond and provide essential services during and after a disaster.
CADRE works closely with Santa Clara County's emergency management community to build disaster resilience among service organizations through communication, coordination and preparedness training.
CADRE is the official local Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster (VOAD) for Santa Clara County under Northern California's State VOAD. Read More >

CADRE Table Top Exercise
Plugging In To The Community's Response
What will your agency do in an emergency or disaster situation? How will you get information about what is happening and the impacts the disaster may have on your services? What will you do with that information? Who will you coordinate with if your agency has resources to offer? Who will you ask for help if your agency needs resources to operate or continue to serve your clients and consumers?
Join us for this interactive session to:
- become familiar with how CADRE will operate in an emergency or disaster activation
- problem solve potential service needs and impacts with representatives from other CBOs and local government
- practice utilizing a newly created CADRE Services Matrix to identify resources that may be needed in times of emergency
- identify gaps and future planning considerations to strengthen CADRE Resource Coordination with other CADRE Leadership Team members, CADRE member agencies and the community at large
