Guiding, informing, and responding in times of disaster.
Western Kentucky Response – Dec. 10/11, 2021 Tornadoes! We are continuing to respond to the tornado affected areas in western Kentucky. We expect to be there a minimum of four more years. Please consider joining a work team to restore homes in these communities.
Eastern Kentucky Response – July 27, 2022 Floods! We are beginning to schedule work camps in eastern Kentucky to respond to the flood affected areas in eastern Kentucky. Please consider joining a work team to restore homes in these communities throughout 2023.
Join the IKC Disaster Preparedness and Response Ministry Team (DPRMT) who is planning work camps to Kentucky throughout 2023. If you or your group have a preferred week going forward, we can set that up for you. Please let us know at least 6 weeks ahead to allow time for registration and the scheduling of volunteer housing. We typically arrive Sunday evening for an orientation meeting and depart for home on Saturday morning after cleaning the dorms, kitchen, and social gather space.
Below are the details of registration and important documents. Anyone is welcome to volunteer, but please note that we are seeking at least a few volunteers with construction experience who would help direct the volunteers.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE AND REQUIREMENTS
The registration deadline is 3 weeks prior to the starting date. All volunteers will need to have completed a background check within the past 5 years.

Background Check Procedure
If you have not had a background check conducted in the past five years and you would like to volunteer for a work camp in 2023, please email the IKC office, to receive an invitation to the Praesidium log-in page to complete your background check. When you log in you will be asked to pay a $12.00 background check fee using your personal credit card. Once you have been approved by Praesidium, the IKC office will be advised, who will in turn advise the DPRMT that you have been vetted.
