6TH ANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

Our Mission

Grassroots to Global Impact

Headwaters Relief Organization grew out of a grassroots response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Since then we
have evolved and diversified. Our early efforts included assisting with clean-up and re-building of homes locally and nationally. Today our services have expanded to include public health, education, psychosocial and medical support and international responses.

Our Impact & Initiatives

Working Alongside Communities to Rebuild and Recover

Public Health

Headwaters Relief Organization contributes to addressing public health issues for the most needy and underserved populations of the world. Our teams of volunteers include experts in public health. medical care, psychosocial support, re-building and engineering. We respond to immediate needs as well as provide long term support.

Medical Support

Headwaters is committed to helping people access medical care. Whether educating people in disease prevention or public health awareness, our team is here to help. Our volunteers have worked with us to provide free clinics in Haiti, Greece and Nepal. Our agile team is dedicated to helping people improve the health of their communities following a disaster.

Education

In all of our work, Headwaters is culturally sensitive to each country’s values and beliefs. We have developed respectful strategies that allow us to provide education and support, enabling communities to build capacity through training of community members. Training is focused not only on disaster response, but on the development of techniques that are specific to developing resiliency.

Global Response

Building Stronger Communities, Building Resilience Together

Headwaters volunteers have provided disaster relief across Minnesota, throughout the United States and around the world including the Philippines, Haiti, Greece, Liberia, and many other places affected by disaster.

Let’s Do This Together

Volunteer With Us

Whether you are on the ground or behind-the-scenes, by becoming a Headwaters volunteer you will be making a difference in the lives of people recovering from natural disasters. As a grassroots disaster relief organization, Headwaters welcomes people with a variety of backgrounds and experiences to be a part of our team.

Donate

Disaster victims have varying degrees of options for self-recovery. Those with the fewest resources are often left without the emotional and physical means to rebuild and restart their lives. Financial contributions enable the most vulnerable victims of natural disasters to rebuild their lives — from purchasing supplies for schools in Haiti to creating a book to help the children of the Philippines understand their feelings.
