UCC Disaster Ministries has partnered with the Fuller Center For Housing in Louisiana to help residents return home following historic and catastrophic flooding in August of 2016.

Coming soon ... opportunities to help rebuild the lives of families whose homes were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Matthew and other disasters. Organize your work group and begin the planning. Opportunities will be posted soon here.
