E3.20 DSACF Community Disaster Resilience VISTA
 
 
 
The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation is a member of the 10-state Philanthropic Preparedness, Resiliency and Emergency Partnership. Through this partnership, the Community Foundation has convened community leaders across multiple sectors with the goal of building capacity to mitigate the impact of, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. Focus is particularly on increasing the disaster resilience of community members experiencing poverty, homelessness, mental and physical disabilities, and language barriers. This group of community leaders has formed the Ready North network with the goal of increasing disaster resilience, particularly among our most vulnerable community members. The VISTA will build the capacity of this network and further its goal by strengthening and establishing whole-community systems and partnerships. With the leadership of the VISTA, these systems and partnerships will focus on communicating disaster mitigation and preparedness tools, and building capacity for comprehensive preparedness and recovery. This work will be founded on the VISTA engaging with community partners to analyze gaps and implement solutions to mitigate the impacts of disasters, especially among community members potentially facing the most harm from disasters. Utilizing and building upon skills in leadership, community engagement, communications and community assessment, the VISTA will collaborate with members of the network to strengthen the disaster resilience and capacity of individuals, organizations and community. The impacts of this work are potentially life-altering. The VISTA member will be one of 24 Ecolibrium3 Resilience Corps cohort members serving in northeastern Minnesota. Although each member is serving in a unique position, cohort members will also jointly complete community service projects.
