Disaster Response and Recovery in the U.S.

Helping Kids Be Prepared, Stay Safe and Build Resilience

Save the Children is committed to reducing the impact of disaster, whether natural or manmade, on children through effective preparedness, response and recovery. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Save the Children led the presidentially appointed National Commission on Children in Disasters and has since emerged as a national leader in emergency response, disaster relief, and recovery.
