What We Do

The mission of episcopalRELIEFnepa is to be A SHIELD in the midst of life’s storms.  After seeing the need to be prepared to deal with disaster in flood-prone Northeastern Pennsylvania, episocpalRELIEFnepa has worked with regional Episcopal Churches to gather and store basic disaster supplies such as gloves, cleaning supplies, bottled water and other things to help ease the challenges of a disaster.

EpiscopalRELIEFnepa also has resources to provide temporary warm shelter, hot meals and a place to recharge cell phones and plug in other necessary electrical equipment during power outages.

And to help build the community that can assist our neighbors with the day to day storms of life, episopalRELIEFnepa schedules and offers simple meals that allow us to spend time with our neighbors, sharing conversation that helps us to help them better.

All of these services are provided free of charge to all who need them, through grant funding and the generosity of local churches, community organizations and individuals.  Learn how you can help.
