Lakewood Disaster Readiness Team (DRT)

We Need Your Help Now!

Hurricane Laura brought a catastrophic storm surge and flash flooding to SW Louisiana and thousands were impacted.

They will need our help and prayers to recover.

Since Harvey we have worked and learned how best to cooperate with many community agencies and efforts, we are committed to mucking and gutting work as need requires. If you would like to be trained and volunteer for the DRT email Pastor Pam Cline at .


This program is a COMPREHENSIVE, COLLABORATIVE, and COHERENT (3C's) action plan for congregations to effectively deliver essential relief and recovery services during and after a disaster, in partnership with and in support of responsible agencies.

*The below picture shows all the components of this collaborative network, we are joining through Hope DR that we have worked with since Harvey.

The United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) owns and operates the Sager Brown Depot facility in Baldwin, LA. This depot assembles, stages, and ships disaster recovery 'kits' wherever they are needed all over the world. Lakewood sends two teams a year that spend 5-6 days preparing and boxing kits, sorting supplies, etc. This is a great mission opportunity for missionaries that are not interested in construction.

Local Missions

Lakewood's global Mission program also offers help and support for local organizations. Examples are local ministries such as Mission Milby community Center in south Houston or at Neighbors in Action in east Houston at the Port. We support these ministries financially and sending teams for 1-2 days of repair and construction support. For more information on local missions, contact Betty Christian.
