Current Disaster Response
The role of disaster response recovery teams is to provide permanent repair/rebuild within disaster affected communities. While teams often require specialized skills, we encourage a holistic approach to recovery.
Update: Puerto Rico Response
In August 2018 UMCOR and Volunteers in Mission relocated the Puerto Rico Response Volunteer Mainland office to the New York Conference Missions office. All information, team scheduling, and volunteer inquiries may be made by contacting Tymera Jackson (firstname.lastname@example.org) (914-615-2248) at the Conference office.
To date, 12 NYAC volunteer teams have served as part of the Puerto Rico recovery effort.
