Samaritan’s Purse volunteers are hard at work repairing and rebuilding homes destroyed by tornadoes earlier this year.

A series of storms and tornadoes tore through Nashville, Tennessee, in March and left behind significant destruction. Hundreds of homes were damaged or destroyed across at least three counties in Middle Tennessee.

Samaritan’s Purse quickly responded, as our staff and volunteers were on the ground serving hurting homeowners in Jesus’ Name just one day after the storms hit. More than 6,000 volunteers helped to tarp roofs, clear yard debris, and remove downed trees.

Now, our teams have moved into the long-term recovery phase of this response and they are working hard to get displaced families back into their homes. We anticipate rebuilding and repairing up to 14 homes, with the first home repairs being completed later this month.

Please pray for our teams as they continue sharing God’s love with people in the Nashville area who are still struggling to recover after the devastating storms.

U.S. Disaster Relief Samaritan's Purse mobilizes and equips thousands of disaster relief volunteers to provide emergency aid to U.S. victims of wildfires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. In the aftermath of major storms, we often stay behind to rebuild houses for people with nowhere else to turn for help.
