Our top priority is to establish local councils, assist them with the development of community outreach programs, and provide them with the resources required to support their programs.
The State level Citizen Corps Council continues to provide oversight responsibility along with the directions from the Director of DEMA. The council has partnered with many volunteer and state organizations to help promote volunteerism and assist in providing training and education to the citizens of Delaware. Some of the organizations that Citizen Corps works with, are American Red Cross of the Delmarva Peninsula, State office of Volunteerism, Volunteer in Disasters (VOAD), State Community Outreach Dept of VFW and other Veteran groups in Delaware, the Dept of Health, Department of Education, National Guard, State Police, State Fire School, several church groups and Civic Associations, Delaware State University and the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). Citizen Corps is now a member of the State Senior Advisory Board
On 18 February 04 we re-energized our State Level Citizen CORPS Council sponsored by the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA). Since the inception of our State Council our number one objective has been and remains to establish local Councils, assist them with the development of a Community Outreach Program, and provide them the resources to support their program. The state councils meet quarterly and provide oversight and guidance for the program.
