Coming this October, Brethren Disaster Ministries will be offering a short-term rebuilding response to the 2021 Kentucky winter storms event. This three-week response will be in partnership with Fuller Center Disaster Rebuilders. Volunteers will be hosted at their housing facility in Madisonville, Ky., and will work in the surrounding communities of Bremen and Dawson Springs. According to their policy, youth need to be age 16 or older.
