Reducing Our Risk
Organization: World Cares Centre
World Cares Center (WCC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that empowers grassroots communities through disaster response training, support and coordination to facilitate bottom up resilient recovery worldwide since 2001. Founded during the September 11, 2001 response by neighborhood volunteers, WCC educates the community leaders and managers and individuals of all ages (from youth to senior citizens) through a wide range of disaster volunteerism training programs.
When disaster strikes the greatest community challenges occur within the first 72 hours. WCC recognizes that climate disasters are not predictable, and strives to prepare individuals and communities pre-disaster through educational training, to reduce vulnerability and mitigate harm. WCC educates on how to effectively reduce the impact of climate disasters on lives, homes, neighborhoods, and entire communities. WCC's community driven resiliency efforts are a proven solution to climate disasters. Citizens educated in WCC's programs are an empowered first line of defense, emerging as Ready Responders poised to take action in a safe, coordinated fashion in all four stages of the disaster cycle - preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.
