Austin Disaster Relief Network is an organization comprised of a network of churches working together with ministries and businesses within the Greater Austin community to form a disaster relief alliance to help those in need in times of disaster. There are three reasons to join the network: We believe our plan is simple and powerful when united under the banner of Jesus Christ, it creates community among the Body of Christ, and the local church involved are autonomous in their approach to helping those in need.
