OGHS Disaster Relief
United Church of Christ Disaster Ministries:
Helping Rebuild Homes and Lives in 2019
Every year, disasters leave families in need of spiritual, physical, financial and psychological support. UCC Disaster Ministries responds to natural and humancaused disasters across the United States and around the world with and through U.S. domestic and global partners.
With a special focus on filling critical gaps in communities where long-term needs persist, UCC Disaster Ministries’ support extends beyond immediate assistance and the coverage of news stations.
In the United States, we work hand-in-hand with our churches, conferences and Conference Disaster Coordinators to offer disaster preparedness and trauma training, respond in disaster’s immediate aftermath, and support communitybased long-term recovery groups with volunteer work teams and Partners in Service, funds and expertise.
We also maintain strategic partnerships and direct relationships with
organizations and faith communities engaged in disaster response in more than 125 countries. Through this work thousands of disaster survivors receive dignified support and relief annually.
OGHS sharing envelopes are available in pew pockets.
