Voluntary org. (VO) have traditionally played a major role in the nationís response to disaster, but the response to Hurricane Katrina raised concerns about their ability to handle large-scale disasters. This testimony examines: (1) the roles of 5 VO in providing mass care and other services; (2) the steps they have taken to improve service delivery; (3) their current capabilities for responding to mass care needs; and (4) the challenges they face in preparing for large-scale disasters. This testimony is based on: a report that reviewed the Amer. Red Cross, The Salvation Army, the Southern Baptist Convention, Catholic Charities, and United Way of America; interviewed officials from these VO and FEMA; and visited 4 high-risk areas -- L.A., Miami, N.Y., and Wash., D.C.
