Welcome to Miami-Dade C.O.R.E.

Miami-Dade Communities Organized to Respond in Emergencies (M-D C.O.R.E.) is a coalition of faith-based and community organizations established to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the community when affected by a disaster. Connections between these organizations and with emergency management professionals will help foster communications and coordination, enhance preparedness, speed recovery efforts, and create more disaster-resilient communities.

M-D C.O.R.E. affiliates are divided into general areas of affiliation based on their capabilities, capacities and preferred area of service. From these areas of affiliation, support groups have been created to specifically address certain needs that may arise within impacted communities.

Spotlight engagement helpersWith whole community engagement, coordinated by Miami-Dade Office of Emergency Management (OEM), M-D C.O.R.E. was activated to support community needs during the immediate aftermath of the storm. M-D CORE partners distributed meals to over 1,000 seniors.

The partners also supported the distribution of ice and water in the Overtown, Gibson Park, Hadley Park, Norte Dame, Little Haiti, Liberty City and Model City Areas.

Many non-governmental organizations which included Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) were involved countywide helping communities post storm. With mobile feeding activities occurring throughout the county by entities such as the Salvation Army, American Red Cross, Feeding South Florida, and the United Way, an additional 482,543 meals were served.
