U.S. Disasters

"Where Faith Meets Works" UCC Disaster Ministries is a nationally recognized ministry that engages volunteers, congregations, UCC Conferences and partners to serve the unique needs of disaster survivors. Every year hundreds of disasters in the United States leave impacted families in need of spiritual, physical, financial and psychological support. UCC Disaster Ministries provides assistance with acute and long-term disaster effects which can last years following an event. With a special focus on serving in communities where long-term needs persist, UCC Disaster Ministries volunteers’ work and support extend beyond that of many disaster response organizations. Through our network of Conference Disaster Coordinators and local congregational connections, volunteers are organized for early clean-up work and long-term rebuilding efforts. UCC Disaster Ministries also provides resources and support for preparedness and technology-caused disasters.
