Protecting the Health of Your Congregation


Helping your congregation become healthier and more resilient 

Faith-based communities can play an important role in bringing communities together to become healthier and more resilient, especially in the face of disasters.

By working with the members of your congregation and community, we can all build community health resilience. Disasters happen every day. From natural disasters, man-made events, and disease outbreaks to everyday power outages, severe storms, and extreme temperatures, disasters of any scale have the potential to bring health consequences with them. The work that congregations like yours do each and every day within the community helps create stronger, healthier residents and a nation with better health security.
