Disaster Response and Recovery

 “We change lives with paint, a new floor, spackling, drywall.” Lynn P. Lampman, Havertown, Pa.

UCC Disaster Response and Recovery responds to natural and human caused disasters across the United States and around the world.

Through our volunteers, congregations, Conferences and partnerships, UCC Disaster Response and Recovery seeks to serve the most vulnerable populations that require spiritual, physical, financial and psychological support. In times of domestic disaster, UCC Disaster Response and Recovery provides a platform and facilitation for much of this work while collaborating with and through UCC Conferences and a network of Conference Disaster Coordinators.

Internationally, UCC Disaster Response and Recovery maintains direct relationships and partnerships with organizations and faith communities able to appropriately and effectively respond to emergency and long-term needs.
