The Oklahoma Disaster Response session began October 2 in Moore, Oklahoma. The local DR staff have more than 60 work-sites funded. Many of these homes have been waiting two years for assistance from recovery from storms and flooding. The first two weeks our NOMADS have done amazing work. We have worked with sheetrock, painting, laying laminate flooring, hanging kitchen cabinets, etc. We have worked in Oklahoma City, Mustang and Norman. It is heart warming to see the homeowners so grateful ...

Here are some of the latest comments from our agencies where we have had recent projects: "Wonderful! All participated on projects to their capabilities. Nomads differ from most volunteers as they are always willing to take on any task with a smile. None come with their own agenda and our workload is always dictated by the immediate needs of others." "They did an awesome job, great to work with, really enjoyed having this group as well as the groups in the past." "The NOMADS group this time ...
