Ready Congregations

Faith-based organizations have always played a pivotal role following disasters, mobilizing their people to help those most in need. Ready Congregations serves all Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap faith-based groups, helping them prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters.  Our goal is to help faith communities be ready to both care for their own congregations in times of disaster and to be leaders in caring for the entire community.

Ready Congregations has developed an interactive process for faith-based groups to create a customized, effective natural disaster response plan. A well-crafted plan is an integral part of becoming a resilient organization that can quickly rebound from a disaster to better assist others.  We are now expanding to include other disaster preparedness and response tools for faith-based groups

If you are part of a faith-based group in North Kitsap, we’d love to hear from you! As our program expands, we’re looking for additional thought leaders to give input for what types of resources would best suit our community.
