Highly regarded for our scalable distribution model, Disaster Services teams, six international warehouses and a Mobile Command Center we are consistently among the first to respond to disasters throughout the world. Millions of survivors have been helped thanks to the local churches, businesses, government agencies, other nonprofits, donors and volunteers who make our work possible.
In 1998, we responded to our first disaster — flooding in Del Rio, Texas, after Tropical Storm Charley. Since then, we have responded to hurricanes, typhoons, ice storms, earthquakes, tornadoes, wildfires and floods in the United States and throughout the world. Our goal? To give people help and hope in times of great need. Already, we’ve responded to more than 280 disasters and have had the opportunity to bring food, water, ice, emergency supplies and long-term solutions to families reeling from tragedy.
