How To Help

Here is a list of immediate ways you or your church can help in southwest Louisiana.

If you have a question, please email disasterresponse@la-umc.org for more details.

The most immediate way to help is to pray. Several people are using this article as a guide to prayer.  They are holding the individual churches in prayer as they know these church communities will be in the process of cleaning up and rebuilding. 

In addition to prayer, there are other ways to help and they are listed below:
 

 

Give Financially
 

One of the most impactful ways to help is to give financially. Your donations will matter! They will help us respond today, tomorrow, and in the future as we continue to assess Louisiana residents' needs. You can head to this web site, or you can text "relief" to 800 500 5858

Early Response Teams


The Louisiana Conference is constantly in need of certified ERT responders.

Early Response Teams (ERT's) fill a specific need in the early days after a disaster to clean out flood-damaged homes, remove debris, place tarps on homes, and otherwise help to prevent further damage while providing a caring Christian presence.  

ERT's are not the first-response group of emergency workers, nor are they recovery, rebuild, or repair teams.

You can follow news of future ERT trainings by heading to the ERT page. 


Volunteer Opportunities


There will soon be many opportunities to volunteer. Please bookmark this page for news of future workdays and ways for your group to register and volunteer.

In the meantime, if you have a question, please feel free to email us.
