Disaster Volunteer MGMT Faith Family Church VISTA OneStar
Faith Family Church in Victoria, TX is working with local and national organizations to help serve the needs of the community from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey such as, Habitat for Humanity, Victoria County Long Term Recovery Group (VCLTRG), and Convoy of Hope. In our efforts with the VCLTRG our goal is to provide additional long-term assistance to individuals affected by disasters who do not have adequate personal resources for basic needs as a result of disasters. With majority of national attention focused on the Houston Metro area it has been difficult to secure funding and resources for rural communities, like Victoria County. Additionally, research shows that natural disasters disproportionality impact poor and marginalized communities and that those living in poverty struggle the most to recover. We are working to offer recovery assistance to all individuals, families and communities more effectively and efficiently until recovery is completed. To help with preparedness and resiliency of Texas communities, Faith Family Church is searching for a motivated individual to help develop volunteer management and recruitment methods.
