Diaster Relief

In the wake of an unprecedented storm, this congregation offered an unprecedented amount of generosity. Over the past two weeks, you've given more than $300,000 to help individuals and organizations impacted by the storm. We are incredibly grateful for the way this church answered the call to offer help and hope to our community.

Our impact team is currently working on identifying ways to continue offering long-term relief. Be on the lookout for opportunities in the next few weeks to help unload supplies and transport them to our partners. For more updates, visit HPUMC's Impact page.


How you can help

  • Donate to our Disaster Relief Fund: Donate to HPUMC Disaster Relief. We will work with churches and partner agencies in affected areas to ensure funds go directly to relief efforts.
  • Pray for the victims and the recovery effort.

The congregation of Highland Park United Methodist Church has a long history of providing assistance when disasters strike. When this happens we are in contact with partners at local, national, and global levels to determine how we, as a congregation, can be most helpful.

Whenever and wherever disaster strikes, please lift up in prayer all those affected, their families, and the first responders.

“The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18

Winter Storms

HPUMC is partnering with Austin Street Center, Oak Lawn United Methodist Church, The City of Dallas, and Preston Hollow Catering to support neighbors experiencing homelessness during this time of extreme cold. If you would like to support our efforts to shelter and feed those affected, please consider making a gift to our Disaster Response Fund.

COVID-19 Response

HPUMC has been working with partner agencies in the community to respond to those affected by the pandemic, to support front-line workers, and to offer assistance to those in need. Additionally, grants have been made to global partners responding to the Coronavirus in their own regions. You can support HPUMC’s response to COVID-19 here.

Long Term Recovery

In addition to providing disaster relief, HPUMC desires to walk alongside affected persons to help them move toward sustainable, long-term recovery. To learn more or become involved in this ministry, please email Arang Cistulli.
