The Carpenter's Hope
This workshop will address a wide range of issues as it relates to the underfunded homeowner and worship center in their attempts to recover from natural disasters. With the increase in natural disasters this community continues to grow each season. We will discuss the difference between disaster response and disaster recovery. Discover what happens to this broad community once the first responders’ mission is complete and they must resort, in many cases, to moving into unsafe and unhealthy homes or abandon them. In the end, focus on the extreme need for the church to respond to the needs in the work of disaster recovery and present a strategy in the formation of a partnership between TCH and NBCA.
