AMERICAS ELDERLY SHOULD NOT FACE THEIR DARKEST HOURS ALONE
ACTIVE KENTUCKY FLOODING: CLEANING UP HOMES IN THE APPALACHIANS
Cajun Navy Ground Force delivers humanitarian relief for aging and other vulnerable populations impacted by natural disasters.
1 in 6 Americans is now over the age of 65. This factor combined with an increase in natural disasters leaves our country facing a humanitarian crisis of vulnerable and isolated aging populations needing fast, long-term assistance.
Cajun Navy Ground Force is addressing this crisis by recruiting, training and leading large groups of trained volunteers. To accomplish this, we’ve designed five programs that work in unison to bring care to those who need it most. Read more on them below.

Cajun Navy Ground Force stabilizes aging and other vulnerable citizens living in natural disaster impact zones.
A trained core team manages large numbers of professional volunteers with existing vital skills to provide a full range of physical and emotional care.
Our vision is to be a data-driven action oriented 501c3 non-profit that swiftly intervenes by creating a massive community response to protect and stabilize elderly and disabled victims living in communities impacted by natural disaster.
The need to swiftly help vulnerable populations after natural disasters is a massively underserved humanitarian crisis in the US. To address it we’ve developed five programs, we call Swift Intervention Programs. These programs work in unison to protect and stabilize the most vulnerable victims with fast and extended care, swift intervention, after natural disasters.
Here’s how they work. After a disaster, we first establish SAFE Camp short for ‘Swift Action Force Emergency Camp’ for urgent supply and medical needs and for a safe place to base our teams and volunteers who are beginning Community Caretaking operations. Our Data-Driven Remote Team oversees and manages our deployment operations remotely. We use on the ground Visual Storytelling to keep the disaster narrative alive and to drive a a citizen based response. And our Swift Intervention Training is about sharpening the saw and making us better and ready for each deployment.
These programs scale as volunteer numbers expand and they contract when it’s time to pull back or as resources or needs dwindle.
