Disaster Response ServicesCAM's Disaster Response Services (DRS) reaches out to communities in the United States that have been devastated by disasters.
If long-term recovery help is needed in a disaster area, our Disaster Response Services (DRS) program schedules volunteer work teams to rebuild homes. DRS helps those in need, while providing opportunities for our staff and volunteers to show Christ’s love to people.
The goal of a Rapid Response team is to move into communities affected by natural disasters within 24 hours. Volunteers move within 48 hours to help with preliminary cleanup, such as: remove debris, clean out flooded houses, and install tarps on damaged roofs.
Search & Rescue
“To seek and to save” (Luke 19:10)
Each day an average of 136 people go missing in the United States. Many places lack the expertise and equipment to locate missing persons. To help fill this need, CAM has launched Search & Rescue as an arm of Rapid Response Services.

Notes from our mailbox
I went back to see the damage to my home and saw that everything that was on the floor…was ruined and getting moldy. I didn’t know where to start or what to do, then a man named John Beiler came to my door and told me of Christian Aid Ministries. I just cried with relief.
Words simply cannot express my gratitude…You literally saved my home. There is no way I could have gotten through this without your help, emotionally or physically. You are a God-send and I think you are really angels.
You all ministered in more ways than just cutting tree limbs and dragging them to the street. All of you were such a great testimony to all my family.
We can never thank you enough for helping us through a difficult time in Clendenin, West Virginia. The wonderful team. . . worked so hard and prayed with us before leaving. . . We will always be grateful.
