To assist those in our community and around the Southeast, Isle of Hope has formed an Early Response Team that will travel to areas hit by natural disasters. The team participates in mucking out homes, tarping roofs, and minor repairs. The team is open to any adult willing to travel when needed.

ERT Training is required to participate. Trainings are available at various times and locations, sponsored by the South Georgia United Methodist Annual Conference. Click here for a list of available trainings and other ways the Conference engages in Disaster Response. All team members must also complete the Isle of Hope UMC Safe Sanctuaries training and background check to participate. To get involved, contact Shannon Baxter by clicking here.
