St. Louis, Mo. – In response to the winter 2015 flooding, the St. Louis County, Jefferson County, and Franklin County COADs (Community Organizations Active in Disasters) have partnered with World Renew, a disaster response service of the Christian Reformed Church, to provide disaster outreach services for flood survivors.
Each county has begun the long term recovery process by beginning to contact flood survivors and assisting them with their unmet needs. World Renew teams expedite this process by sending teams door to door and hosting walk in centers in St. Louis, Franklin and Jefferson Counties. World Renew is using The Salvation Army Arnold Corps as their temporary headquarters while in the St. Louis region June 13-25. The Salvation Army is the lead case management agency for all three counties. The work that World Renew does will support the efforts of the COADs who will be active in the recovery process for many months. The COADs are comprised of community agencies such as The Salvation Army, American Red Cross and United Way, as well as local churches, county emergency management agencies, and citizen volunteers.
World Renew team members will be wearing green shirts going door to door.
