The R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation

Relieving and Embracing the Lives Interrupted by Earth’s Forces


The RELIEF Foundation stands for exactly what we do: Relieving and Embracing Lives Interrupted by Earth’s Forces. 

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to providing assistance to people and areas that have experienced great hardship due to nature’s forces. Founded in 2005, by students from the University of Miami, we were able to assemble a contingency of volunteers to go assist the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Since then, R.E.L.I.E.F. has been to Haiti, Japan, Georgia, Colorado, Houston and most recently Puerto Rico. The R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation are not the first responders to these devastated areas, but we are the workforce and teams that arrive when it is time to rebuild, rejuvenate and empower the local community members.

All of our projects go through a rigorous review process to ensure that they are intentional, sustainable and meet the most critical needs of the affected area.  We partner with local community leaders and NGOs to ignite medical, humanitarian and reconstruction projects that will provide tangible benefits and a lasting impact to individuals and communities.
