We do not typically provide services or care directly through public channels like the web, but we do want to provide you with some help and get you connected to help as we best can. We encourage homeowners and families who have experienced a disaster to first contact your local state services, typically by calling 211. After a major disaster, states in New England will set up a call center to route survivors to community resources and organizations that can help. You may also find information about us at FEMA Disaster Relief Centers that are set up in local communities. If you have a dire need, contact our main office, or either of the staff indicated here for help.
Individuals and churches that prepare before a flood, storm or disaster are much better off and are better able to recover afterward. We publish the following resources in order to help.
