The Austin Disaster Relief Network is comprised of churches, ministries and businesses within the Christian community of Greater Austin to form a disaster relief alliance to help those in need in times of disaster.
On the evening of October 30th, heavy rains caused flooding in Central Texas directly affecting over 500 homes. Affected areas initially reported were South Austin, Pflugerville, Wimberley and other surrounding cities. Emergency officials are assessing the damaged areas and assisting in water rescues. ADRN is actively deploying assessment teams, emotional and spiritual care teams, safety and logistics teams and volunteer teams to begin clean up efforts. Funds are being received to help ADRN assist families to meet their immediate needs and to offer financial assistance through long-term church sponsorship.
