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 neighbor in need. Some key areas of work 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
