As with natural disasters there are stages to the complete recovery of a community. These include: search and rescue, “relief” efforts, rebuilding and restoration. Similar to natural disasters, there are stages in administering aid to those experiencing disasters in their personal lives. We are thankful for agencies/organizations/churches that provide “relief” in ministering to individuals, but so many times the help is temporary for example feeding the hungry, providing clothing, paying over-dues bills, etc. Frequently, these relief efforts are lacking in ways to identify the broken relationships the individuals are experiencing, or to equip and support them as they seek to move forward from their disasters.
Milo Group identified this gap in “mercy/mission/relief” efforts. Initiatives were implemented to provide genuine opportunities for individuals to engage life and society with dignity, strength and health. Behind all the initiatives is the desire to see the broken relationships mended and for the restoration of a life.
