Our Impact on U.S. Poverty
World Vision's domestic disaster response program helps our church and community partners prepare for disasters, develop emergency networks, mobilize resources, and deliver relief.
Disasters affect families regardless of income, but the impact is greatest on those with the least means to recover. Between 2011 and 2013, World Vision responded to 13 disasters in the U.S. and served nearly 125,000 people.
Through our partners, we helped families cope and recover from tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, and fires. See how World Vision's disaster response efforts assist families in times of need.
