Our mission is to assist communities in their recovery efforts following devastating damage from hurricanes and natural disasters such as Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti and the tornadoes in North Carolina. We do so by organizing and sending multiple delegations to hard-hit regions – serving with their time, talent, and treasure.
Working under the auspices and guidance of local area programs, St. Francis delegates assist in the cleaning and rebuilding of affected homes, usually working side by side with the homeowners so that they can eventually return to their homes and neighborhoods.
The Disaster Recovery Ministry completed a successful delegation to Galveston, Texas in March 2009 with sixteen participants who worked on six different homes of Hurricane Ike victims.

We returned from Fondwa, Haiti on May 14, 2011 where we assisted in relief efforts following the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010. For more information, contact Janet Mintel at 676-6352 or email@example.com.
