Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief


When disaster strikes, some of the first to respond with help are Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers.

Kentucky has an active disaster relief program that works in concert with similar programs in other states. Whether the disaster occurs in Kentucky or elsewhere in the nation or the world, Kentucky volunteers may be called out to help.

More than 4,500 individuals are trained as Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief workers. Volunteers can staff feeding units designed to deliver thousands of hot meals on short notice; move in with chainsaws to help remove debris; do the dirty work of helping families remove mud from flooded homes; and provide many other disaster relief services.

Southern Baptists work in partnership with the American Red Cross and other private agencies through National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster.
