As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. In working together, we can make the vision of a better world a reality for so many of our sisters and brothers who have been affected by disasters across the country.
There are two ways to help:
$500 can support on-going reconstruction projects for families who have lost their homes
$100 can supply resources for temporary shelter
$25 can help increase capacity to do damage assessments for the homes of emergency survivors
