Mission Statement

OUR MISSION is to develop and support faith-based disaster readiness, response, and recovery services for New York City. In preparation for and in response to disasters, NYDIS convenes its leadership to network with local, state, and national agencies involved in disaster management to facilitate the delivery of services, resources, and information to religious communities, under-served victims, and impacted communities.

Description

NYDIS is a faith-based federation of service providers and charitable organizations who work in partnership to provide disaster services.

WE PROVIDE SERVICES through three principal program areas:

DISASTER ADVOCACY on behalf of disaster victims (particularly vulnerable and under-served individuals) and impacted communities.

DISASTER PLANNING & TRAINING includes mitigation education and preparedness training for faith-based communities, including houses of worship, religious leaders and their neighborhoods, and partner agencies.

RESPONSE & LONG-TERM RECOVERY through direct victim services, training and support of case workers, clergy, and caregivers.
