UCC Disaster Ministries has partnered with VIND (Volusia Interfaiths/Agencies Networking in Disasters) to assist Daytona Beach area households damaged by Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 to repair/rebuild homes, e.g. roofing, gutting interiors, replacing insulation, siding, drywall repair and painting, flooring and other interior work as needed.
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. Thousands of residents still live in temporary housing struggling to rebuild their lives. Volunteers are needed to repair and rebuild homes. Additional work team locations to be announced soon!
Join the 40 UCC congregations that have applied so far for a UCC Disaster Ministries Matching Grant of up to $250 to assemble Church World Service Emergency Cleanup Buckets and other kits. The need is great: CWS distributed more than 14,000 buckets last year, but now it's stock is down to a critical low of 600.
