SANDS: Scituate Alliance of Natural Disaster Services

The mission of SANDS Helps is to bring together community, government, faith based organizations, business and volunteers committed to making their community become more prepared, resilient and self sufficient. Together, members will enhance Scituate’s ability to mitigate, prepare, respond and recover from disasters thus ensuring that our neighbor’s needs compromised in a disaster are evaluated and addressed. Efforts of the organization are meant to augment those already in existence. Efficient and coordinated response will maximize public and private resources available. This will be achieved through cooperation, coordination, and collaboration of stakeholders.

SANDS would not exist without the vision and guidance of the late Susan Phippen. Very humbly, Susan dedicated much of her life to the betterment and preservation of Scituate. She will be missed dearly by so many in our community.

Please learn more about the newly established Susan Phippen House where SANDS, along with other community non-profits, meet on a regular basis.
