Team RubiconTeam Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. Team Rubicon harnesses the skills of military veterans, offering them a chance to continue their service by helping and empowering those impacted by disasters. Through continued service, Team Rubicon seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster relief; community, built by serving with others; and self-worth, from recognizing the impact one individual can make. In its four years of existence, TR has responded to 60 disasters across the US and the world.
The Home Depot Foundation’s investment in Team Rubicon is being used to help the organization increase its U.S. domestic disaster response capabilities. In addition, Team Depot and Team Rubicon pool their resources of highly qualified volunteers to respond to local disasters.
