ABOUT WORLD CARES CENTER

World Cares Centers reduces the harm, suffering, and loss caused by disasters by empowering under-served, at-risk communities to prevent everyday accidents and react as educated and skilled ready responders when disaster occur. WCC believes that resiliency is best promoted when all

members of communities are prepared to respond to disasters together, working together to provide training coordination and support to the community.

Founded by citizen New Yorkers who stepped forward to assist in their community’s recovery in the aftermath of 9/11, WCC has become a leader in training individuals and communities in locally lead disaster preparedness, response and recovery. WCC has a history of responding to disasters from
within hyperlocal communities from the attacks on 9/11 to Hurricane Irene, Superstorm Sandy, and Puerto Rico.

World Cares Center and Ready Rockaway have forged a strong and meaningful partnership during the Superstorm Sandy relief effort. Together the two organizations have successful developed and delivered the Rockaway Ready Responders Initiative, the Rockaway Ready Responders Round Table
and the Rockaway Ready Responders Awards programs.

World Cares Center (WCC) trains local leaders who will emerge as disaster managers when their community is stricken by crisis offering disaster management tools and provides workshops so that citizens emerge as safe and effective disaster volunteers. The result is a proactive community able to
reduce suffering by responding immediately to the needs of their neighbors.
