About Us


Our Mission

The 4B Disaster Response Network (4B DRN) exists to mobilize a network of churches to reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ by serving people affected by disaster in the 4B area (from the Beltway to the Beach and the Bay to Brazoria County).

Our Story

Following Hurricane Harvey in August 2017 local churches went to work serving our community with the immediate rescue and relief efforts.  As the extent of damage was assessed, churches came together to formulate a long-term recovery plan that would best serve our community on the long road to recovery.  The 4B Disaster Response Network formed to respond to the immediate needs relating to Hurricane Harvey and to prepare for future disasters that might affect our community.

Our Vision

Our vision in the next 18-24 months is to rebuild thousands of homes in the 4B area that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.  We have established some amazing partnerships in our area and around the nation that will be supporting these efforts as we mobilize thousands of volunteers and raise money to help flood victims recover from this disaster.  The 4B Disaster Response Network (4B DRN), a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization, is comprised of churches and organizations and trained volunteers bringing hope into crisis.  Business partners, local agencies and community support play a vital role in 4B DRN’s mission through the generosity of in-kind donations, monetary gifts and volunteer assistance.
