About Us


Headwaters Relief Organization is a disaster relief collaboration of volunteers  that supports the emotional and housing needs of families and communities ravaged by disaster.

Since the organization’s inception, Headwaters Relief volunteers have provided disaster relief across Minnesota, throughout the United States and around the world including the Philippines, Haiti, New Orleans, and many other areas affected by disaster.  Headwaters Relief’s mission is to react with agility and compassion when disasters strike. Our volunteers include a wide range of people from social workers to plumbers.

Headwaters Relief is built on the donation of tools, materials, money, and the labor of our volunteers. Our administrative support is donated by our related organization Orion Associates. 100% of public donations to Headwaters Relief directly support victims of disaster. 

With a donation to Headwaters Relief Organization, you will be our partner in clearing debris, rebuilding homes and helping victims of unexpected disasters work through emotional trauma to get their lives back on track. Headwaters Relief is a unique disaster relief organization in that we have expertise assisting those with physical disabilities and mental health concerns.

Headwaters Relief Organization is a member of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD).
