Disaster Relief

Hawaii Relief

Undoubtedly you have heard of the devastation in Maui from the wildfires that have devastated that island. Dozens of people have died and thousands have been displaced and are in desperate need. The good news is that Southern Baptists are already there offering assistance!

Arizona Disaster Relief is comprised of volunteers who go out of their way to provide help, healing and hope to those that have been affected by a disaster. We work in Arizona as well as partner with other State Conventions and Send Relief to help those affected by disasters in other states and around the world.

We share the love of Jesus through our teams that serve those who have been impacted by disasters in a variety of ways. We are able to do this without a cost to the homeowner because of the generous support of Arizona Baptists!

We invite you to prepare for disasters, volunteer to serve and support the work of Arizona Disaster Relief.

Fort Myers

Arizona Disaster Relief volunteers answered the call after Hurricane Ian wreaked destruction in a wide swath across Florida.  Requests came from Florida Disaster Relief for Assessors, Mass Feeding teams, Shower/Laundry and Feeding teams from many states to support recovery efforts and Recovery teams to assist residents in beginning the long road to healing.  Chaplains, always imbedded in our teams, were on the field when the Lord presented a rare opportunity to assist FEMA at a Community Assistance Center in Ft. Myers Beach, one of the hardest hit areas. Our chaplains brought comfort and hope for many days to distraught residents, many of whom were so distressed, they were considering harming themselves.
