The 211OC Disaster Volunteer Program

Disasters happen. Would you know where to turn? In case of a disaster situation in our community, 2-1-1 Orange County (211OC) is one of the lead agencies to connect people to resources in Orange County.

At 211OC we believe that when people get connected to resources, they do better, when they do better, our community is stronger ... whether in a disaster or not.

Join the 211OC Disaster Relief Corps and be prepared to help your community. If there’s an earthquake, a fire, or other natural disaster, 211OC is prepared to connect those in need, from housing pets, to families in need of short term housing, food or clothing, to answering phones in a crisis situation. We do need volunteers, like you, as part of our Disaster Relief Corps to help augment our response to these potential critical needs.

In the event of a disaster in Orange County, I am willing to be contacted by 211OC to help:
