Disaster recovery initiative UCC helped form is growing ecumenically
A pilot program to help communities launch long-term recovery following disasters is growing ecumenically. Over the past two years, the disaster ministries of the United Church of Christ, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Church of the Brethren have joined forces to pioneer the Disaster Recovery Support Initiative (DRSI) in nine states and U.S. territories. Now DRSI is folding into the disaster programs of Church World Service (CWS), a faith-based organization with 37 member communions, including DRSI’s three founding denominations. CWS responds to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster around the globe. Click here to read the UCC News story.
