Unlike the other Cajun Navy groups, who limit their scope to direct action on the ground, the Cajun Navy Foundation is an action-oriented think tank consisting of a diverse group of technology, social media, disaster relief and rescue professionals. As a 501c3 charity, our objective is to empower communities across the country with the knowledge of how to use technology, social media and mobile apps to take action in their own communities in the midst and aftermath of a disaster. We are working together to understand how to fill the gaps during the chaos of disaster and respond more quickly than authorities are typically able to. In the aftermath, our greatest opportunities lie in rebuild and recovery efforts.
As we continue to learn from experience and adapt along with the ever-emerging nature of technology, we recognize that our volunteers are our greatest assets. With extensive and diverse backgrounds, skill sets, strengths, gifts and abilities, we strive to maximize our collective impact by engaging volunteers where they are most needed. In our organization, people bring their talents to the table and use them in ways that compliment one another.
