Headwaters Relief Organization

Headwaters Relief Organization is disaster relief collaboration of volunteers that supports the emotional and housing rehabilitation needs of families and communities after disasters. Our organization’s mission and purpose is to bring together volunteer workers, skilled trades people, and mental health professionals to assist in a community’s short-and long-term rebuilding efforts. Our mental health volunteers have expertise in trauma and disaster response and include psychologists, marriage and family therapists, licensed social workers, case managers, psychiatric nurses and licensed counselors. Our mental health support “on the ground” includes first responses as part of medical teams, providing support to first responders, counseling and training care givers, educating students and volunteers and supporting and educating adult and child survivors.
