Episcopal Relief & Development’s US Disaster Program works in areas across the United States that have been affected by disasters. By offering resources and training to help communities prepare for disasters and providing emergency support, we help vulnerable groups of people to make a full and sustained recovery.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters are still happening and preparedness continues to be necessary. Learn more about how disasters affect you and your neighbors.
Most disasters have three distinct, sometimes overlapping phases: Rescue, Relief and Recovery. Gaining an understanding of each phase will help you give the right support at the right time.
When we see images of people suffering, we want to do something. However, sometimes outside help complicates a response. Here are some ways you can be helpful while you watch from afar and wait to help.
Episcopal Relief & Development offers diverse resources for disaster preparedness and response, clergy care and formation for adults and children. Explore the Resource Library to find tools for many different occasions.
