Before Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Irma hit Florida, Lutheran Disaster Response was already on the ground to help. Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliate is actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts. Together, we have a strong history of working with disasters in the Gulf Coast area. Recovery efforts are expected to take years, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected through every phase of this disaster.

100% of donations to LDR go directly to help those in need.  If you would like to make a donation on line, please click on the link:
