Ark of Safety Community Resiliency Summit Reconvening
Building Resilient Communitiesis hosting our first-ever Community Resiliency Summit Reconvening bringing together the leaders, changemakers, and pioneers with a strategic focus to build community resilience. Community resilience is the capacity of individuals, families, and organizations to prepare for--and to recover from--the physical, health, social, and economic impacts of a disaster so they are less vulnerable to disasters and able to recover sooner. FEMA ranks California as having the second-highest number of natural disasters in the US since 1953. We cannot control when disasters happen, but we can control our communities' ability to withstand disasters.
