Welcome to our team!
Every year, Humanity Road volunteers help thousands of people around the world impacted by disaster. In 2016, the disaster desk was active for 3,878 hours. Volunteers responded to 105 events in 45 countries, and total volunteer hours of service topped 11,000 hours.
Humanity Road was founded in 2010 by Chris Thompson and Cat Graham, twin sisters who created the organization to connect people, animals and emergency officials with help and resources when disaster strikes. Humanity Road pioneered the new generation of humanitarian relief through social listening. They built a process focused on early adoption and improvement in response to sudden onset disaster.
In 2016, the organization was recognized by the United Nations Office of Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) at the World Humanitarian Summit. Humanity Road was one of only 100 nonprofits in the world to be showcased in its Innovation Marketplace.
In 2015, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) identified Humanity Road as one of only 7 organizations selected for the FEMA Tech Sector to help solve critical needs through innovative applications of technology. Learn more
