Housing Needed for Disaster Response Work Teams


There is a pressing need for housing for work teams on the west side of Atlanta. More than 100 teams from outside our Conference are planning trips to North Georgia to rebuild and repair homes and buildings that were flooded in September. The teams have 6 to 8 members on average, but some have as many as 14 to 30. Their needs include a place to sleep, as well as a place to cook or volunteers to prepare meals. Many teams work for 5 to 6 days, but one group may be here for as long as two months.

In addition, Disaster Response received a generous donation of a warehouse in the west metro area and also needs volunteers to staff the office in that warehouse.

To discuss housing opportunities or to volunteer, please call the Flood Response Center at 678.533.1443.
