Who We Are
through a different lens then traditional disaster recovery professionals most often utilize.America Recovers began as an idea to help people and communities recover from disasters that hit them hard. At first it was a concept, then an organized entity and today it is an IRS approved 501c-3 non-profit. The focus of America Recovers is to teach people and communities how to plan for recovery through a different lens then traditional disaster recovery professionals most often utilize. America Recovers’ approach is to work backwards from “boom” thus planning for a new way of operating is built into the process of recovering from whatever event occurs that disrupts an individual and/or organization’s way of life. This approach focuses on the “after impact” state to determine what an individual, organization and/or community will look like, because change is inevitable once a life changing event occurs. There is no going back and there is no “new normal” in this approach. There is forward momentum to adapt through agility, focus and tenacity
What We Do
America Recovers fills this gap. We teach individuals, organizations and communities how to plan for recovery. We partner with organizations that provide crisis management support to individuals, business and communities. We provide scholarships to veterans, at risk youth, individuals seeking retraining to support workforce development in rural areas and underserved communities. Our mission is to provide training, mentoring and support to individuals impacted by life altering situations and to those that protect our Nation – first responders, public safety and our military community.
Our vision is to help as many individuals that want to increase their own resilience to life’s challenges and also want to give back and help others in their community.
