Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief

With a hot shower and a hot meal. With a prayer. With love. All over America, we help people to clear away the debris, the mud and the ashes. We make God’s love real to those who desperately need it. We are 65,000 strong. We are trained and ready to respond to disaster and devastation with help, with healing and with hope. We are Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, and last year our members gave 59,583 of their days in the aid of people all over America — from wildfire victims in California to hurricane victims in Manhattan.
