Flood Recovery in West Virginia 2017


In June 2016, severe flooding in West Virginia killed 24 people, damaged more than 1,200 homes and left more than 18,000 without power across the state. The Diocese of West Virginia is addressing long term recovery needs, with a particular focus on those most vulnerable and underserved by other means. The recovery program is focused on leveraging local congregational networks to meet unmet needs and supporting a participatory recovery planning process in affected communities.
