Help Families Recover

Why We Need Your Help

As you can imagine, picking up the pieces of your life after its been dismantled by a disaster can be overwhelming, to say the least. Navigating the long road to recovery is complicated and stressful, and can eventually lead to feelings of anxiety and despair.

 

Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN) works through the Church to ensure that everyone impacted by disaster has an opportunity to experience the hope of Jesus Christ. At ADRN, our aim is to alleviate disaster-related anxiety and despair with the help of volunteers and donors like you. We do this by pairing survivors with trained Disaster Relief Shepherds (DRS's.) Just as our Good Shepherd guides and cares for us, our DRS's walk alongside families that may have lost everything, and guide them through the process of recovery toward a life restored and hope revived.

 

In addition to providing survivors with spiritual and emotional support, ADRN also works through the Church to offer emergency housing, gift cards, money for rent, bills, and more. With recent surges in weather-related disasters in Central Texas, more families than usual have been affected over the last few months. As their needs grow, so do ours. If you would like to help, please consider making a donation today or start a fundraiser with your small group, friends, colleagues or family this summer to help us rebuild funds as ADRN meets the increasing needs of families coming through our doors.

 

Support the multiple disasters ADRN responds to throughout the year and help provide assistance to families in need. Funds will be used for gift cards, supporting supplies and materials, volunteer support, equipment, shelter, housing, rebuilding, transportation and where it is best needed. Join us and become an online fundraiser, start a fundraiser this summer or donate today to raise critical funds to help recovery efforts and bring families home to safe living conditions.
