Disaster Response Services

CAM's Disaster Response Services (DRS) reaches out to communities in the United States that have been devastated by disasters.
CAM Rebuilding Projects

Rebuilding projects

If long-term recovery help is needed in a disaster area, our DRS rebuilding program sets up a base. We then schedule volunteer work teams to rebuild or repair homes in the area. Recipients are generally underinsured and have a low income. Many of them have nowhere else to turn for help. DRS rebuilding projects can last anywhere from several months to several years..

CAM Cleanup Projects

Cleanup projects

When a tornado, hurricane, flood, or wildfire strikes, our 23 Rapid Response teams scattered across the U.S. are equipped and ready to investigate and respond to the damage. Our goal is to have a Rapid Response team research a disaster within 24 hours and respond with volunteers within 48 hours. Cleanup projects include cutting up fallen trees, clearing debris, mucking out flooded houses, putting tarps on damaged roofs, and more.

CAM Search and Rescue

Search & Rescue

“To seek and to save” (Luke 19:10)
Each day many people go missing and create search and rescue incidents across the U.S. Our ten trained Search & Rescue teams are ready to respond quickly to help local authorities search for lost and missing persons. Our goal for this program is to show God’s love and provide support to those in distress.

Loaves & Fishes Food Kitchen

When the power is off or someone’s home is damaged or destroyed, it means a lot to them to be able to get a hot meal. The Loaves & Fishes Food Kitchen, operated by the New Order Amish churches, sets up in disaster areas of the U.S. Loaves & Fishes ministers to people by providing delicious meals, lending a listening ear, praying with suffering people, and distributing Christian literature.

Updates from the field

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.

Recipient from South Carolina

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.

Recipient from Colorado

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.

Recipient from Florida

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.
