OneStar: Victoria County Recovery Volunteer MGMT VISTA
 
 
 
Victoria County Long Term Recovery Group’s (VCLTRG) is a collection of faith-based, non-profit, government, business, volunteer and other organizations and agencies which provide coordinated disaster recovery efforts to the residents of Victoria County, Texas. VISTA members will serve at Faith Family Church, one of VCLTRG's member organizations. In our efforts with the VCLTRG our goal is to provide additional long-term assistance to individuals affected by disasters who do not have adequate personal resources for basic needs as a result of disasters. With majority of national attention focused on the Houston Metro area it has been difficult to secure funding and resources for rural communities, like Victoria County. Additionally, research shows that natural disasters disproportionality impact poor and marginalized communities and that those living in poverty struggle the most to recover. We are working to offer recovery assistance to all individuals, families and communities more effectively and efficiently until recovery is completed. To help with preparedness and resiliency of Texas communities, VCLTRG is searching for a motivated individual to help develop volunteer management and recruitment methods.
