About Resilience Force

About Resilience Force

Preparing for climate change is among the most significant national imperatives of our century. We know that the next climate disaster can come the day after tomorrow. In order to prepare, we need a million-people strong resilience workforce. Resilience Force exists to build, train, and protect the skilled and at-scale workforce that can make all US homes and families climate-resilient. We work with a multi-racial workforce that includes the undocumented migrant and US-born workers, especially Black, brown, Native American, rural, and young people.

Resilience Force has its roots in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, helping to protect workers in the Gulf Coast. Over the last seven years, we have carried those lessons forward–pulling together unusual suspects for a fresh conversation about how to turn disasters into openings for renewal. Resilience Force works with government, corporations, homeowners, and community members to ensure workers can be trained and deployed effectively and safely for this critical work. You can learn more about our past successes in the New York Times (article), the New Yorker (article with audio available), and NowThis (video with audio & subtitles).

As an organization we are rapidly scaling up in scope and size, from a young entrepreneurial environment towards a long term, sustainable entity–we have a strong and growing set of stable funders, government partners, and more. Our team has to be flexible to respond to the many, real-life challenges that are presented to us and the communities we are working in partnership with. Working at Resilience Force will require emotional intelligence and compassion to tackle these hard problems as well as a desire to grow out our internal culture and structures.
