Bringing hope and healing to the survivors of disaster.
Their lives have been turned upside down and Disaster Relief shows the love of God to all people regardless of race, religion or background.
We invite you to become a part of the Disaster Relief family!
Attend a 3-hour Basic Training. Look at the BSCM Calendar or contact Bob Kiger, MI Disaster Relief Director, (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the next scheduled Basic Training class.
Disaster Relief is willing to come to your church, several churches gathered together, or association, ANYTIME & PLACE to lead a 3-hour Basic Training class at the cost of $10 per person. In one short evening, a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon, the people in your church could be equipped to do hands-on missions through Disaster Relief. For more information, contact Bob Kiger at email@example.com.
Complete one of the Unit Trainings listed below. There is no better time to demonstrate the love of God to a hurting world. The Disaster Relief family demonstrates this love through many different ways.
Learn how to safely use a chain saw to cut down a tree or to limb a tree once on the ground. Also learn how to properly maintain the saw and how to sharpen the chain. We need people to use chain saws, pull brush and become a trailer monitor.
If you enjoy showing compassion to people in need then Chaplaincy may be your calling. To be a Chaplain, you must be trained in another Disaster Relief discipline. We want our Chaplains to understand all aspects of a disaster and recovery. The Chaplain serves the needs of the volunteers, as well as survivors of a disaster. Chaplains are trained in crisis management.
When a home is flooded a person's whole life is upended. Everything that came in contact with water has to be cleared out. When a family has to throw out life long mementos, they need help. The Disaster Relief family shows compassion and helps remove these items. Disaster Relief volunteers also spray the home to prevent mold buildup.
Remember how a hot shower felt after a hard day’s work? The DR family provides a shower unit for the volunteers. The unit is equipped with showers and laundry facilities. Having clean clothes, hot shower, and a hot meal are services the Disaster Relief family provides for the volunteers.
Nothing provides comfort, encouragement, and strength after a disaster than a good meal. The Disaster Relief family prepares meals for the workers and helps feed the survivors. The Disaster Relief feeding unit can prepare 60 – 5000 meals in one day. Nothing is more gratifying for the feeding team to see the smiles on the faces of the folks they are feeding.
