During times of crisis, Samaritan’s Purse works alongside churches to bring hope to their local community. The local church has an important role to play following a disaster, and we aim to equip churches with the resources to feel empowered to participate in meeting the needs of hurting people around them. Your church can become a host church and serve as the base of operations for our disaster relief team during a disaster response. Hosting can include providing meals, billeting, laundry, and other hospitality support for our hard-working volunteers. Together, we help communities move towards long-term recovery after a crisis is over, while sharing God’s love through acts of kindness.

Sharing Hope in Crisis

Samaritan’s Purse also partners with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Rapid Response Team to deploy crisis-trained chaplains alongside our disaster relief volunteers. As well as providing emotional and spiritual support to disaster victims, the chaplains offer a free ‘Sharing Hope in Crisis’ seminar to churches interested in learning how to better communicate with those hurting during a crisis.
