PARTNERS AND FRIENDS
Citizen Corps Council of pierce County provides a unique platform to bring together the many agencies, non-profit organizations and faith based groups that usually respond to disaster's and helping people in need. Individually these organizations bring many assets, skills, and capabilities to the table. However, no one group can do all that needs to be done. Coordinating these efforts, they tap into each others resources and lessen the chance for our residents to fall through the cracks. Working together, these groups discover who can do what and build a sense of trust that enables them to expand beyond their own resources. The end result is our residents who are impacted by an event have a better chance to access the services and support they need to recover.
Citizen Corps members may be involved in more than one of these organizations. This enables them to be more engaged in supporting their communities even when disasters are not happening.
