Disaster Recovery Projects:
How We Serve:
Attack Poverty Disaster Recovery is committed to walking alongside residents who have been affected by disasters and empower them to lead their own recovery. We support residents through home repair, spiritual and emotional health, and other basic needs. We understand the complexities to recover immediately and long term from a disaster. We collaborate holistically with long-term recovery groups, partners and other networks to advocate for resiliency and recovery for the residents in our communities. Our home repair process empowers residents to lead their own recovery by teaching them to manage their personal recovery projects while advocating for residents when a need for additional resources is found. We provide counseling for residents impacted by disasters to recover both spiritually and emotionally, and we work to provide basic needs like food and cleaning supplies.
Our Volunteers make all of what we do possible! If you are interested in Volunteering with us, please fill out the volunteer waiver below and email it to us at (APDR@attackpoverty.org). A member of our staff will reach out to you shortly!
