Emergency Preparedness and Response


Response to Disaster: 

The Institute for Congregational Trauma and Growth(ICTG) provides research, education, and networking tools for ministers, staffs, and trained volunteers leading congregations and organizations after disaster.
ICTG started as a small group of Presbyterians who happened to be closely connected to numerous congregations, seminaries, and universities around the country, including a wide range of faith backgrounds.  They sought to give back to their congregations and neighbors by creating an ecumenical space where trauma-informed research, education, and networking tools could be freely accessed and used for the best results for healing and growing communities.
