Severe winter storms, including tornadoes, and the resulting flooding are affecting people in much of the country.
Flooding may last only a few days in a community, but the impact can last for months, especially for poor families already in a flood-prone housing community. People may be displaced from their homes for weeks or months and their suffering compounded by the loss of so many possessions and sometimes even employment. Our Society of St. Vincent de Paul is often the community’s only resort for such long-term assistance.
The SVdP Disaster Services Division and local Councils/Conferences are currently responding to disasters in: Alabama, California, Illinois, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
Please pray for all the people who have lost their homes to disasters and continue to support the efforts of Vincentians to help them. Please help now!
