Thank you for your interest in Heart to Heart International's Disaster Response Team (DRT). Upon completion of this application, additional instructions will be provided. We will review your application and supplements once all documents have been submitted.

Please read the following carefully:

The application process timing varies depending on the time taken to submit supplemental paperwork and the availability of HHI staff to interview and review applicants. The process takes longer during disasters as HHI staff are deployed to the field. During times when HHI is not responding to disaster this process might take two weeks, during an active disaster response this process could take two or more months.

All Disaster Response Team members are subject to criminal and credential background checks.

At this time, we are not deploying LPNs or EMT/Paramedics in a clinical role. However, you can apply as a non-medical logistics volunteer.

If you have any questions along the way, please check out our FAQs page. If you have additional questions, please email Gabby,
