SDIA Disaster Response Missions

Disaster Response is what SDIA was founded on and it continues to be our primary continued service opportunity. Other opportunities to serve are found within each community and include assisting with events, cleaning/maintaining parks, distributing food & water, and other local needs.

These continued service missions EMPOWER our Sheep Dogs to continue serving their communities and country in times of need.

Teams provide help through chainsaw work, tree & debris removal, muck-out operations, covering roofs & windows, distributing food & water, and other meaningful tasks.

Working alongside fellow Sheep Dogs and giving back to their communities satisfies their innate desire to serve and provides a sense of belonging and purpose many have been missing.

From 2010-2021, 5,411 SDIA Members and Volunteers deployed on 329 Disaster Response Missions, assisting more than 64,980 people. Teams tarped 361 homes and cleared 2,744 trees from 1,230 properties. In addition to these physically taxing tasks, Teams also distributed 335,921 lbs of food, 7,373 cases of water and 18,852 lbs of hygiene, cleaning and miscellaneous supplies.

“It felt so good helping people and talking to folks in need. At the end of each day I felt beat up and tired…and very happy looking forward to the next day. I have a need to serve as it makes me whole as a human. Through this organization I get to be part of something bigger than me.”
