How the Local Relief App Will Help Locals
Local Relief is The Local Support Hub for Natural Disasters.
When a disaster strikes, it’s scary, it’s devastating, and until you’ve experienced it, you don’t realize how insanely chaotic it is.
Local Relief is a mobile app supported BY locals FOR locals in the wake of a natural disaster. It’s a desperately needed social hub for locals seeking help, locals wanting to help, volunteers with boots on the ground, and information on where to find supplies and resources necessary to rebuild.
Whether you’re searching for a generator, wondering if local roads are flooded, or if you’re curious if schools are closed, you’re not the only one with questions. Your neighbors are wondering the exact same thing.
Information you can post in your city group includes where to purchase supplies, road closures, power outages, sandbag collections, food drives, lost and found pets, local flooding, you name it!
After the disaster has passed, Local Relief provides the short and long term recovery platform to share your needs, updates, and information on local organizations with boots on the ground.
If you'd like to volunteer or donate, Local Relief can connect you with the locals and organizations you need to make an impact.
To our beloved local nonprofits, Local Relief is also the app for you! Whether you want to keep a pulse on your town or offer your services through your own group, we encourage you to do so.

It’s a hub for locals seeking help, locals wanting to help, local nonprofits with boots on the ground, where we can find supplies, and the resources we need to rebuild."
