PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE to Rebuild after a Disaster

The Cumberland Disaster Recovery Coalition (CDRC) is a long-term recovery group (LTRG)  that formed as a result of the April 16, 2011, tornado event in Cumberland County.

The CDRC is a representation of nonprofits, faith-based and charitable organizations working together to meet the unmet needs of Cumberland County residents affected by State and Federally declared disasters. The CDRC works in collaboration with other organizations to assess the needs, offer resources and ensure that residents are helped after all personal insurance, SBA loans, and FEMA help have been exhausted.

We have a great community of concerned citizens as well as churches, businesses, faith-based organizations, government agencies and non-profits to lead the way and participate in the CDRC. As you continue to visit our website you will see the different organizations that make up your CDRC.


If you were not affected by the disaster, your volunteer expertise is needed, welcome and appreciated. You can be part of the solution!
