SAFER Santa Rosa is currently working on Long Term Recovery from Hurricane Sally. The challenges we face are the same ones we have seen before. WE NEED FUNDING.
Following the 2014 floods we proposed a system to generate funds by simply asking for local organizations to commit a monthly amount for the SAFER Disaster relief fund. We know that if 2,000 organizations contribute $10 a month we would have $20,000 in a month and $240,000. in a year. if this had happened after the 2014 flood we would have $1,440,000. available to help immediately with our recovery needs today in Santa Rosa County instead of waiting and hoping strangers from other places with their own rules will come and save us. We really want and need to change that situation.
Support Alliance For Emergency Readiness (SAFER) is the successor of the Santa Rosa Long Term Recovery Organization which developed after Hurricanes Ivan and Dennis. During periods when there are no disasters, SAFER attempts to meet the needs of the less fortunate in the community.
Our vison is to create the most resilient community possible to safeguard our way of life. SAFER is a humanitarian association of independent organizations active in all phases of disaster. We are a network of NGO organizations active in disaster where each member organization maintains their own identity and independence while closely collaborating with other SAFER member organizations.
