Help us bring the Light of Hope to Austin as we continue to provide support for families still recovering from the Winter Storm. For the first time in our 12-year history, ADRN has canceled our annual Light of Hope (LOH) Fellowship Dinner due to the overwhelming nature of Winter Storm Uri to focus on assisting families. Unfortunately, this annual fundraiser supports a third of ADRN's yearly operational costs, so we need your help.
We’ve set a goal to raise $550,000.
Will you partner with ADRN and help us move forward into the exciting future God has planned? A handful of very generous donors are paving the way with a dollar-for-dollar match for your donation for the first $100,000.

When you GIVE WHERE IT MATTERS MOST into ADRN's General Fund, you equip ADRN with the resources needed to help us stay on the front lines of disaster. Your gift enables us to prepare, train, and deploy volunteers while funding the resources needed to fulfill our mission to meet the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of those affected by disaster!
General Disaster Fund
Support the multiple disasters ADRN responds to throughout the year in the greater Austin area and help provide assistance to families in need. With recent surges in weather-related disasters, more families than usual have been affected by flooding, local apartment fires, house fires, storm damages, and more over the last few months. ADRN responds to 85-100 disaster incidents per year in the greater Austin area, which typically impacts 400-500 individuals per year. As their needs grow, so do ours. We need your help. Funds will be used for gift cards, supporting supplies and materials, volunteer support, equipment, shelter, housing, rebuilding, transportation, the costs of coordination, and where it is best needed.

You Can Equip Church Networks Across the Nation...
With a 400% surge in disasters worldwide since 1980 and a considerable increase in the size and scope of these disasters, there’s a growing need for the Church to work together within their cities to be better prepared to mobilize and respond to disasters as one voice with one mission.
It’s no longer “if” a disaster will strike but “when.”
The Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) has developed a new program – the National Training Academy (NTA)-- to equip and empower leaders around the nation and globe to create networks based on our model in order to respond to disasters.
The NTA will provide city and church leaders with the training and support they need to form a church network, train volunteers, respond to disasters, and provide physical, emotional, and spiritual support to the survivors impacted.
To date, ADRN has helped launch Church networks and/or Church-based, long-term recovery teams in 12 cities in the United States, including California, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Florida, and Texas.
