Hope is essential for those in crisis after a disaster to take their first steps towards recovery. ADRN offers that hope not only through emergency supplies and funding but also by walking alongside survivors through some of the most difficult moments of their lives. Your generosity makes it possible.
Each year, ADRN serves 400-500 local disaster survivors in the Greater Austin area providing physical, emotional, and spiritual support to help them get back on their feet. Whether it’s a large-scale event like a hurricane or an electrical fire that burns a single-family dwelling, disaster leaves families devastated and often without shelter and basic necessities. ADRN equips and mobilizes our network of churches to respond with hope, compassion, and practical help, not just in the moment of crisis but all the way along the long road to recovery.
Our mission extends beyond the Greater Austin community. ADRN has launched our National Training Academy to plant and resource similar disaster relief networks in cities across the nation. Together, we could help thousands of disaster survivors through their darkest hours and back into safe and clean homes.
Your donation makes it possible for ADRN to bring hope into crisis, to train and support the volunteers on the ground and face-to-face with disaster survivors, and to continue developing our 19 top-rated training modules serving the network in our community and emerging networks across the country.
Every dollar given will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 thanks to a very generous Christian foundation. Partner with us today with your single gift or monthly.
We’re excited to once again participate in #GivingTuesday, a global movement inspiring millions to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. We have our sights set on raising $50,000 in 24-hours on #GivingTuesday so we can bring help and hope to disaster survivors. Thanks to the generosity of ADRN network church Brentwood Oaks Church of Christ (brentwoodoaks.org), the first $10,000 donated will be matched dollar for dollar!

Give Where It Matters Most
Giving where it matters most into ADRN’s General Fund, equips ADRN with the resources needed, including personnel, supporting materials, equipment, and other disaster-related materials to help us fulfill our mission to meet the emotional, spiritual, and physical needs of those affected by a disaster.
General Disaster Relief 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 150-500 individuals/families 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.
Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta Relief Fund
As Louisiana residents begin the long cleanup process following Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta, the Austin Disaster Relief Network's Relief Fund will help them get back on their feet. Funds raised will go towards emergency needs as well as cleaning up and rebuilding homes destroyed in this storm.
COVID-19 Relief Fund
Thousands of individuals and families in Greater Austin are experiencing financial devastation as a result of the impact COVID-19 has had on the local economy.
While the Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) is responding to the emotional and spiritual needs of many of these families, we need YOUR HELP responding to the immediate financial needs of those who’ve lost jobs or income due to the virus.
