Hurricane Harvey Status and Recovery

The College of Biblical Studies would like to provide financial support to our CBS family who have suffered losses due to Hurricane Harvey. This is not intended to replace insurance coverage or FEMA funds for which you may be eligible. Please click the button below to request funding. This is a one-time allocation and priority will be given to those with documented home or auto damage. We cannot guarantee that all requests for aid nor full amounts will be funded. However, we pray this will help lift some of the burdens as you recover.
