Catastrophic Relief  Alliance

                                           It started with a hurricane in 2005!

The Catastrophic Relief Alliance (CRA) student group formed after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  We're 10 years strong and still providing disaster relief support by rebuilding homes afflicted by natural disasters and housing distress.  CRA members works within the United States and in our Lancaster community.  If you like getting dirty and working with tools JOIN US - WE GET IT DONE! 

We've Been Getting It DONE for 10 Years!

Milagro House, Spring 2015

The Catastrophic Relief Alliance leapt into action over spring break to work with our partners at Milagro House, to paint halls and rooms. Milagro House is committed to providing education, housing and counseling for women and their children experiencing homelessness, and CRA is happy to support their efforts.
