Our Roadmap to Preparedness program has expanded beyond the Bay Area and into Southern, California and most recently, the mountains outside Boulder, Colorado at the request of the United Way. UP staff members are increasingly in demand as featured speakers at events aimed at helping people be more insurance literate and avoid coming up short on coverage after disasters.

By invitation of homeowners associations and business groups, UP is presenting "Insurance Assurance" workshops in both rural and urban areas. The workshops offer tips and tools based on our 20 years of disaster recovery lessons learned and the expertise of our national corps of volunteers.
