VOLUNTEERS JOINING THE NETWORK
Thank you for your interest in the Austin Disaster Relief Network. ADRN is a network of churches with volunteers who are active members in a local church and have agreed to the Statement of Faith. For volunteers who may not agree with these terms, there are other options available to get involved (see below).
Alternative Volunteer Opportunities
For those individuals who do not agree to the Statement of Faith, but would like to volunteer with ADRN, there are various ways to get involved.
