Families Displaced by fire

Since 2007, SILVER LINING OUTREACH has been a pro-active response to residential fires. We arrive to the fire ready to provide "The F.I.R.E Box", the Four immediate Response Essentials to the affected families. The more donations we receive, the more families we can service.

The "Fire Information & Readiness Education" Class

SILVER LINING OUTREACH does more than responding to residential fires and more than providing for those families. We also educate residents on the three stages of fire preparedness. Our Fire Information & Readiness Education Class was created to help residents learn about fire safety, prevention and related resources.

HURRICANE RELIEF

DISASTER RELIEF PACKAGE

SILVER LINING OUTREACH PROVIDES HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO FAMILIES WHO BECOME DISPLACED BY FIRE OR FLOOD.


Every year like clock work, there will be Hurricane Season. In November 2013, we were hit by Hurricane Sandy that ravaged the East Coast.  In 2017, everyone was focused on Hurricane Maria that ripped apart Puerto Rico. This year, August 2019 we are now dealing with the destruction of the Bahamas with Hurricane Dorian. SILVER LINING OUTREACH understands that there will be destruction due to the weather every year and we plan accordingly.  


Mission statement – One of the things that separate SILVER LINING OUTREACH from others is our Humanitarian Assistance. We know that fires and hurricanes will happen so we prepare ahead of time. Our Disaster Relief Package is designed to provide for a family of four after a hurricane. Just like "The F.I.R.E Box", after a hurricane families receive a pre-packed supply of needed essentials.


When a hurricane hits, it displaces too many families for any one agency to handle. During the aftermath, agencies such as the Red Cross, DHS, FEMA, the National Guard and others all get together to tackle the big picture. We focus on the smaller pictures, "The Individual Families".


Relief Package – We know that every family needs certain things to maintain their basic daily routine; toiletries, bedding and clothing. Our Disaster Relief Package is designed for each family to have the needed essential to carry them through the relief efforts.
