San Francisco FAITHS to Offer Classes on Disaster Preparedness for Community Groups

“Life during the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us that faith and community-based organizations are not immune to experiencing disasters,” says Carmen Bogan, the program’s coordinator. “We all talk about being prepared, but how many faith-based and CBO leaders set aside the time to do it? Now is the right time to prepare for what’s next. Just two hours of preparation could make the difference. That’s what this series is all about.”
