Disaster Response Starts with You

We are committed to helping you to prepare, respond, and recover from disasters in Indiana and beyond. In connection with UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), we offer training and tools to equip you and your church to be a source of hope in the midst of disaster. Learn more about connecting neighbors, disaster response efforts, giving, and serving here.

If you have questions about our current disaster response efforts, please email jennifer.huff@inumc.org.

Respond to Disasters

Pray and learn

Looking for prayer and other worship resources? Hoping to learn more about UMCOR and disaster response? Find materials and training here.

Give

100% of your gift to UMCOR is given to the advance. You can designate your gift through your local church or give directly. The international advance number is 982450. The US Disaster Response and Recovery number is 901670. You can also give where most needed with advance number 999895 or to the Indiana Conference.

Serve

You can complete training to become an ERT. You can serve on location as an ERT or with an ERT depending on the callout. Spontaneous uninvited volunteers and material donations can complicate and hinder the response, which may cause a second disaster. You can make relief kits.
