Hurricane Harvey Relief: Ways You Can Help
Here at Catholic Charities, we are looking to provide assistance to those that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Below are a some ways you can lend a helping hand: Local relief groups, progressive organizations, unions, and immigrant rights groups are already mobilizing grassroots relief efforts. Here is a list of groups and efforts you can plug into to help: To Donate Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. To Volunteer Texas is still in response mode and, until the storm has stopped, we will not have a clear sense of the damage or when it will be safe to begin recovery efforts. If you would like to support the recovery effort, here’s what you can do now to help:
- Please be patient and do not self-deploy at this time. The first priority is to make sure the communities are safe and public officials and disaster relief organizations have had an opportunity to assess the damage and identify what the specific needs are.
- It is also important to avoid donating material goods at this time.
- Don’t bring supplies or donations to fire stations, police departments, etc. First responders need to focus on immediate needs and emergency situations.
- If you are in the Houston area, volunteers are encouraged to contact Volunteer Houston, for opportunities to get involved.
- Catholic Charities NY is monitoring the situation in Houston as it develops. Help will be needed in months to come and we will update all our volunteers about potential volunteer deployment to the region.
- You can also reach out to Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster https://www.nvoad.org/ for a list of more than three dozen faith-based, community, nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations to see if there are ways you can help there.
