Prepare for the worst and plan for the best with innovative disaster recovery apps.

A disaster can seriously impact your organization's operations, whether it's an earthquake, wildfire, hurricane, or human-caused calamity. In this Public Good App House demo event, we will showcase practical solutions that nonprofits can use to ensure that they, and their communities, are ready to respond when disaster strikes.


  • RespondLocal by NeedsList: Match needs and offers in real-time to meet your community's needs more quickly. Take the crisis out of crisis response.
  • Missing Maps: Help map areas where humanitarian organizations are trying to meet the needs of people at risk of crises.
  • SmartResponse: Incentivize transparency and support the most transparent organizations with the greatest capacity to deliver services.
  • Solvoz: The platform for responsible procurement in aid. Find the best solutions; connect with local and international businesses.

 This Public Good App House event is a project of Caravan Studios, a division of TechSoup.
