What is Upper Valley Strong?
Upper Valley Strong is a team of non-profit agencies, churches, schools, towns and local branches of State government. Under the Upper Valley Strong umbrella approximately 50 agencies, municipalities, and numerous community representatives work together to respond to natural disasters in our region. Our purpose is to get direct services to people in need and to share resources and expertise to make sure support dollars are used in the most effective manner possible. Upper Valley Strong is considered a Community Organization Active in Disasters (COAD), assisting with local and effective disaster recovery.
Our service region covers the Upper Valley area in both Vermont and New Hampshire. We work with Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission (TRORC) as well Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Comission (UVLSRPC) to obtain disaster-related information more effectively to create a more cohesive approach to disaster response and recovery.
We are your neighbors helping people whose lives have been impacted by disasters in our region. At our core, we are support agencies you already know, such as the Upper Valley Haven, COVER, SEVCA, and the Upper Valley Housing Coalition.
