Children's Disaster Services

When Disaster Affects Children

Since 1980 Children’s Disaster Services (CDS), a ministry of the Church of the Brethren, has been meeting the needs of children by setting up child care centers in shelters and disaster assistance centers across the nation. Specially trained volunteers provide a calm, safe and reassuring presence in the midst of the chaos created by tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, wildfires any natural or human caused disaster.

In 2017 CDS volunteers have provided childcare to evacuees and survivors of wildfires, tornadoes, and flooding, including responses to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Your gift enables CDS to be ready to respond whenever such disasters arise.
