NECHANMA – Jewish Response to Disaster is a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization providing clean-up and recovery assistance to homes and businesses affected by natural disaster.
Guided by the Jewish values of Tikun Olam, repairing the world, performing good acts, and helping the stranger, NECHAMA offers a helping hand in the spirit of goodwill and creating mutual respect and understanding among people.
After assisting more than 180 storm-affected families in Houston recovering from Hurricane Harvey, our Response team is now working in Southeast Texas by the Lousiana border. We are currently accepting volunteers to work with us doing debris removal and muck-and-gut operations.
After completing operations in the Flagler Beach area of Florida, NECHAMA’s Florida Response Team is now assisting affected families in Jacksonville, FL in the Ken Knight Drive area. We continue to engage in debris removal and muck-and-gut operations.
