Regardless of where you are located, a natural disaster can occur at any time. Having a business continuity plan is essential to being able to continue to serve your clients and preserving your organization.
NPHD’s experience with Hurricane Sandy reinforced the importance of business continuity planning for us. NPHD and our parent organization, the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island, had excellent systems in place, and our technology staff was able to rapidly develop components for which we had not planned. As a result, we were serving clients at full scale within a week to three weeks (depending on program) after our main offices were totally destroyed in the storm and our paper records damaged beyond use.
As a nonprofit capacity builder, we knew we could help other nonprofit organizations by sharing what we knew and had learned.

We then work one-on-one with your executive director, the director of operations, and the director of IT, to develop a complete business continuity plan that addresses:
