Share Your Story

The Disaster Distress Helpline invites you to share your stories of hope, strength and recovery after a disaster in our new initiative, “Strength After: Disaster Survivor and Responder Stories of Hope and Recovery.” Our goal is to collect stories from survivors of and responders to natural disasters like hurricanes, floods, wildfires and earthquakes, as well as human-caused disasters such as environmental incidents and acts of mass violence.

Your story may be featured on this website, in order to help others as they move forward on their path of recovery.

If you are currently experiencing distress or feel that you are in crisis in any way, please contact the Disaster Distress Helpline 24/7 by calling 1-800-985-5990 / text “TalkWithUs” to 66746.
