HOW WE HELP
Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, is comprised of over 175 Greater Austin churches and thousands of trained volunteers bringing hope into crisis. We prepare, train and equip our network of volunteers in advance to meet the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of those impacted. Our primary goal is to sponsor families affected by disaster through our Disaster Relief Shepherd Program, walking with survivors through recovery until they are back on their feet and in a clean and safe home. ADRN funds the rebuilding/repair of homes and provides emergency financial support to survivors in need.
ADRN responds to small and large disasters within our community and collaborates with the City of Austin, Travis and Hays County Office of Emergency Management, as well as other state agencies. To date, in 2017 ADRN has responded to 85 small incidents. Since 2009, Austin Disaster Relief Network has deployed to 17 major disasters assisting over 38,000 survivors and given away over 5.4 million dollars.
