Lutheran Disaster Care , Inc. is a Ministry of Presence

Lutherans join together to provide mercy to those in need whether near or far, regardless of race,creed, or religion.

Lutheran accompaniment allows us to work through the means of grace that God provides for His ministry of mercy, working through the Church.

The deep human needs and psychological scars left after disaster require care beyond the restoration of physical needs. Putting lives back together requires real care, hope and love.

What We Do

Through our member churches, LDC provide trained volunteers, the ability to do mass feedings, and supply disaster buckets, kitchen kits, and other supplies. We are developing a case management system to coordinate our work teams at a disaster site. Our member organizations are experienced in managing a disaster response and running a work camp as part of a recovery effort. We are working to put together programs to assist congregations with long-term recovery. We focus on sharing God’s grace in all our endeavors and provide devotional materials and/or Bibles to those we assist.
