Disaster Recovery and Reinvestment

After disaster wreaks havoc in a community, attention is focused on the immediate mitigation of losses. But without proper direction, the reconstruction can lead to a destabilization in the community. A quick and dirty rebuild in the model of the first will invite the same destruction and hinder progress toward a more resilient community.

For DADCO, disaster recovery begins before catastrophe hits. We help build contingency plans for businesses and local governments, reinforce our defenses before the strike, and continue support throughout the immediate aftermath.

The recovery portion is our opportunity not just to rebuild, but rebuild with future disasters in mind – holistically stronger and smarter.

Facilitated Community Action Agendas

Stakeholders have the capacity to foster real growth in their communities, and DADCO can facilitate that. We work with local assets, resources and capacities to create an achievable economic goal. We design custom agendas for communities to foster real economic development locally, which contributes to the strength of their regional and national economies.


David Dodd, founder and president of DADCO, educates businesses and community leaders with presentations on different aspects of economic development. While he can custom design talks for specific groups, there are several applicable to any progressive organization. They call stakeholders to action and show them how to take real direction in the course of their own economies. Contact David to discuss which of these aligns with your community’s goals, or to craft a specific workshop for your stakeholders.
