Brethren Disaster Ministries (BDM), a program of the Church of the Brethren, restores hope for the most vulnerable disaster survivors by engaging volunteers to repair and rebuild storm-damaged homes, and by providing grants to support the disaster recovery efforts of faith-based partners.

Children’s Disaster Services (CDS) meets the needs of children by setting up child care centers in shelters and disaster assistance centers.  Specially trained to respond to traumatized children, volunteers provide a calm, safe and reassuring presence in the midst of the chaos created by disasters.  CDS also educates parents and caregivers on how to help children cope.
