The Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization comprised of churches, ministries and businesses within the Christian community of Greater Austin to form a disaster relief alliance to help those in need in times of disaster. According to an infographic published by SmartPlanet, Austin and other Texas cities are at the highest risk for natural disasters in the United States.

"We decided to get involved with ADRN during the Bastrop, Texas fires of 2011," said Steve Damman, President and CEO, QuantumDigital. "Although Bastrop is 30 miles away, we could see the smoke here in Austin. It was so close to home that we knew we had to help."

QuantumDigital's Investment in ADRN

  • Leading by example, Damman and his wife, Debra, have completed extensive FEMA-based trainings in order to ensure the Company could be of the utmost assistance to ADRN, including:

    • Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

    • Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)

    • Psychological First Aid (PFA)

    • First Aid/CPR/AED (Red Cross)

  • Uses its physical assets, including trucks and warehouse, to assist in picking up and distributing relief supplies and for storing donated items.

  • Following a recent equipment upgrade, QuantumDigital donated dozens of used computers to ADRN, which are being used to manage the organization's busy call center.

  • Engages in disaster relief efforts that include:

QuantumDigital's Investment in its Employees

QuantumDigital actively encourages its employees to get involved in the Austin community, through both traditional and skills-based volunteerism roles, with the majority of volunteer time occurring during business hours. Additionally, all monetary donations made by employees to ADRN are matched by QuantumDigital.

"This business was started with a programmer solving a business need," said Damman. "With data management as the basis of our company structure, it made sense for us to utilize our technology foundation in support of ADRN. Our work with ADRN also has a unified connection with our staff. We work hard to ensure we are living up to our employees' expectations of the company, and I'm so proud to see that our commitment to corporate social responsibility has been continually supported since QuantumDigital's founding in 1986."
