“Every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” Heb. 3:4

A disaster can destroy not only homes, but also the sense of well-being for survivors.  Brethren Disaster Ministries recruits volunteers, led by faith, to use their skills to promote recovery.

Trained, skilled project leaders supervise volunteers as they extend a helping hand to clean up debris and restore the homes of disaster survivors in need. The presence of these volunteer work teams helps to ease trauma and promote recovery.
