Diakon Lutheran Disaster Response

We have partnered with Luthercare in Lititz, PA for Disaster Relief. As Lutheran social ministry organizations, both organizations have participated individually in the LDR network for many years. This partnership allows the two organizations to utilize their resources in a more efficient manner while also collaborating with other affiliates of the network.

The partnership does not alter the primary coverage area of the services being provided, only how those services are led and provided. Luthercare will take the leadership role in managing the partnership’s activities, including the development of the plan for, and response to, active disasters while also interacting and coordinating with volunteer organizations in parts of Pennsylvania and Maryland. Diakon will continue to serve as the fiscal agent and affiliation partner to the Lutheran Disaster Response of the ELCA.

William Snyder, consultant for Luthercare’s Greenstone Mosaic affiliate, will provide leadership in reorganization while also working with other LDR affiliates across the various Synod territories. Combined, the partnership will extend to the Delaware-Maryland, Lower Susquehanna, and Upper Susquehanna Synods.
