How we help

A holistic approach to disaster response in North America.

Clean-up and debris removal

After certain disasters, volunteers help by mucking out flooded homes, removing downed trees, completing minor repairs, and tarping roofs after a disaster.

Needs assessment

Next, volunteers interview survivors to discover their unmet needs after a disaster. This information is passed on to local recovery organizations so they can apply for recovery grants and manage the local response.

Home repairs

We have a long term presence in communities under the leadership of long term recovery organizations to repair homes. Schools, churches, families, and businesses can go to a disaster site for one week with the DRS Groups Program. Individuals and couples can serve with the DRS Long-Term Program for three weeks at a reconstruction site.

Our partnerships

Change comes faster when there are more people united under the same goal.

When we come together and learn to collaborate towards a common goal, we can better support those who need our help the most.

By partnering with other churches and organizations, we are able to maximize our help and support to the right people at the right time.
