A message from Executive Director Peggy Hahn

Responding to a Natural Disaster

Peggy shares a personal message for volunteers preparing to serve in disaster recovery work.

Remember the people’s homes you go into are filled with memories.

“There’s an opportunity for us to hear people’s stories, to care for them, and to ask them how they want help at a pace at which they have a moment to catch their breath in a time of crisis and respond.”

As we do recovery work, it’s about the people first. Be thoughtful as you care for others.
