DECATUR, Ga. — As Hurricane Harvey strengthens in the western Gulf of Mexico off the Texas coast, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Disaster Response is monitoring the storm and is in contact with national and state partners in preparation to assist as requested.
CBF will partner with its state and regional organizations, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD), as well as other local and national partners, including friends in the North American Baptist Fellowship, in any response.
“We are in contact with all of our partners and are ready to receive updates and requests for assistance and aid,” said Alan Williams, coordinator of CBF’s U.S. Disaster Response. “We have worked with these partners over many years and, together, we stand in solidarity with those in the path of this storm.”
In keeping with CBF’s focus on long-term impact, CBF Disaster Response participates in networks seeking to help communities after a devastating event, but employs most of its resources on the long-term recovery, rehabilitation and resiliency of a community after first-responders have finished their work.
Donations to support CBF’s disaster response efforts to Hurricane Harvey may be made online at here or by mailing a check payable to “CBF” with 17004 in the memo line to:
