Lutheran Disaster Response strives to help the church continue to be church in the midst of disaster — following Christ’s call to bring hope and healing to our neighbors in need. Our congregation makes up an essential part of the church-wide effort both nationally and internationally.
Some key areas of disaster response include:• Providing emotional and spiritual care for people who have been affected by a disaster and for leaders who respond to a disaster• Coordinating volunteers through our local affiliates• Assisting refugees in a holistic way by meeting the varied needs of the community• Promoting disaster risk-reduction by helping communities build their assets thereby reducing the effects of likely disasters• Providing long-term recovery efforts by addressing the unmet needs months or even years after a disaster strikes
The ELCA has supported recent major disaster response efforts such as• U.S. Storms
