Church and Community Crisis Response Training
In May 2014, nine rural communities participated in this webinar training.
In Summer and Fall 2014, the communities are taking what they learned into their communities.
In Fall 2014, CiRCLe M will be conducting follow-up visits to the communities.
Our hope is...
....the communities will strengthen their emergency plans... and the gifts of the church will be part of those plans... and be put to good use during times of great need.
CiRCLe M is grateful to the following donors for financially supporting these webinars:
