Staten Island COAD
The Staten Island Community Organizations Active in Disaster (SI COAD):

  • Unites not-for-profits & agencies that can provide assistance in disasters.
  • Coordinates services from SI COAD members to increase efficiency and effectiveness.
  • Interfaces with response organizations on the federal, state and local level.
  • Promotes a culture of preparedness in the borough’s not-for-profits & community.

In addition to meeting monthly, the COAD also hosts:

  • Family Ready Day:  A yearly event educating the community about large-scale disasters and smaller local emergencies that can happen more frequently.

  • Self Care Conference:  Annual event that provides support to those in the field, providing self care education, resiliency, recognizing PTSD and burn out.  All skills then can then bring back to colleagues and pass onto clients.

The Staten Island NFP Association is administrator of the SI COAD. To learn more about the SI COAD contact Program Manager Laura Del Prete at 718-355-6229 or email
