How to Get Involved

Organizations, businesses, and individuals can support LAP-AID by becoming members. There is no fee to become a member.

  • LAP-AID is a communication network during disasters. For example, county response partners may identify a need like mental health support after a tornado. LAP-AID responds through the Mental Health Team comprised of local mental health agencies.

  • Faith-based organizations communicate with the Disaster Volunteer Coordination Team to assist households’ needs.

  • Businesses offer post-disaster funding and volunteers. Resources assist impacted employees.

  • Individuals support teams such as Emergency Volunteer Centers.
