BRACE Encourages Support of Disaster Survivors


BRACE continues to encourage support of voluntary organizations assisting hurricane survivors. In Florida alone, over 2.6 million families requested assistance from FEMA to assist with their recovery from Hurricane Irma.  Many of those families are being assisted by member organizations of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster in their recovery. Please consider assisting those organizations that are assisting survivors by clicking on the "Donate" button above.

News from the BRACE Team

In September 2017, FEMA notified BRACE that it was receiving the Awareness to Action Award through the Individual and Community Preparedness awards program.  BRACE was also being recognized as a Honorable Mention for the John D. Solomon "Whole Community" Preparedness Award. 

In 2012 BRACE received the Second Annual John D. Solomon Preparedness Award previously for the collaborative work as a team of nearly 500 disaster preparedness and response organizations, engaging in efforts that reach the business community, children and youth, under-served populations, faith-based organizations, first responders, and individuals with access and functional needs. In 2011 BRACE received the Promising Partnerships award through the program.  Since the Individual and Community Preparedness Awards Program was established in 2009, BRACE has received a total of 13 awards and honorable mentions, the most of any community based organization in the country.
