Volunteer with CBF Disaster Response
In keeping with CBF’s focus on long-term impact, CBF disaster response participates in networks seeking to help communities after a devastating event, but employs most of its resources on the long-term recovery, rehabilitation and resiliency of a community after first-responders have finished their work. This takes time and planning.
CBF will work with state and regional organizations, the federal emergency management agency, the national voluntary organizations active in disasters (VOAD), as well as other local and national partners, including friends in the North American Baptist fellowship, in any response.
To learn more about CBF's work in the following areas, please visit the corresponding links:
The Houston and sourrounding area, following Hurricane Harvey, please visit our Hurricane Harvey Response page.
The Texas coast following Hurricane Harvey, please visit our Texas Coastal Church Recovery Project page.
Northern Florida are following Hurricane Irma, please visit our Hurricane Irma Response page.
Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, please visit our Hurricane Maria Response page.
Three ways you can help:
Please pray for families who have lost everything they own and first-responders who are giving everything they have to save lives. Pray for communities as they cope and as they heal.
We ask that churches and individuals provide financial support so that funds can be used locally to respond in the most effective way to meet needs. Please consider a gift to the CBF Hurricane Disaster Relief Fund here. CBF is not accepting donations of items as we have learned from experience that it is much more efficient and cost-effective to provide funds that allow Disaster Response personnel to procure supplies as needed.
