Austin Disaster Relief Network coordinates and supports disaster relief efforts in the Austin area. In order to train and equip their volunteers, they offer a three-hour class covering an introduction to ADRN, a training road map for volunteers, badging/credentials, emergency response protocol, and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) individual/family preparedness training. Each volunteer who completes this course will receive an ADRN badge and become a certified volunteer who is ready to respond and serve our city in times of disaster.
Austin Disaster Relief Network is coordinating volunteers to shepherd families affected by disasters. Family Shepherds will help meet emotional, physical, and spiritual needs as the families seek recovery, including meeting with them, knowing them, speaking for them, connecting them to available resources, and sharing the hope of Jesus in their crisis. For more information about becoming a Family Shepherd and what this entails, trainings will be offered. After signing up, training dates/times will be emailed to you. Signing up and attending a training does not commit you to becoming a Family Shepherd, but instead provides you with more details about this opportunity.
