Team Rubicon recruits, trains, equips, organizes and deploys veterans to aid in disaster response operations around the world. This is our way of bridging the gap between returning veterans and their home communities. We demonstrate - to society and individual veterans alike - that veterans are powerful resources with skills to be harnessed. Over 140 missions rebuilding communities from disasters that range from hurricanes, to tornadoes, to floods, to earthquakes. Over 35,000 volunteers committed to serve. Over 5,000 veterans have deployed to over 20 countries, with an initial response time of 24 hours or less. Tens of thousands of lives affected in communities around the globe.
