Reedville Church is Proud to Offer Support for PDA
Reedville Church is proud to offer support for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance enables congregations and mission partners of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic events.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. The core budget, including staff and administrative costs, is funded through the One Great Hour of Sharing, and its program work is additionally funded through designated gifts.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance focuses on the long-term recovery of disaster impacted communities, provides training and disaster preparedness for presbyteries and synods, works collaboratively with church partners and members of the ACT Alliance (Action by Churches Together) internationally, and nationally with other faith based responders. Additionally, PDA connects partners locally and internationally with key organizations active in the response — United Nations, NVOAD (National Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster), World Food Program, Red Cross, FEMA and others, and manages a number of specialized volunteer teams to work nationally and internationally providing consultation, program design and training.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance also cooperates with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services in providing service structure for asylum seekers in the United States and Church World Service in the resettlement of refugees to the United States.
