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.
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.
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.
