Emergency Assistance Foundation on the Disaster Podcast

Douglas Stockham from the Emergency Assistance Foundation (EAF) joined us this week on the Disaster Podcast. EAF is a U.S.-based, public non-profit administering employer-sponsored disaster and hardship relief funds worldwide.

Many people picture the distribution of material objects and physical boots-on-the-ground assistance when they think of disaster response. But for the extended team at EAF, disaster response means something altogether different. After a disaster, all families have many common needs, such as shelter or food, and many have unique needs, such as medicine or baby supplies.

As such, EAF — on behalf of the companies they represent — are financial first responders who provide grants to impacted individuals and families around the world through the administration of disaster and hardship relief funds. With the money provided, grant recipients are able to buy what they need. In compliance with regulations, EAF is committed to getting financial assistance to those in need through quick, efficient grant processing — no matter the obstacle or location.

This episode is hosted by Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley.
