Church Of God Ohio Disaster Relief

COGO-DR brings spiritual and emotional assistance while providing physical aid during recovery from a natural disaster.

Equipped with an emergency response supply trailer and some disaster response funds, COGO-DR volunteers:

Travel to the disaster site

Hands on in repairing damage

Help families get back into their homes


Your disaster relief response is vital to provide families with the care and services they need. Experience has taught us to have $25,000 on-hand for a relief mission. This enables us to serve until we can receive additional funding from congregations across Ohio.

Here’s how your support can help families recover from a disaster:

$10,000 — Helps a family get back into their home
$5,000 — One roof replacement
$1,000 — Emergency enclosure of one house
$500 — Replacement of 2 or 3 windows
$250 — One pre-hung exterior door
$125 — Paint for 2 or 3 rooms
$50 — Emergency tarps

Will you prayerfully consider contributing? Every donation counts!

Better Together. Better with Prayer.

Because of the power of prayer, we ask that you join with us in prayer for the volunteers, the families and their communities affected by natural disasters. May the Lord keep them safe and give us the support we need to fulfill our mission.
