Long Term Recovery

Disaster Preparedness

Preparedness in Harris County is not just for Hurricane Season. Avoid panic by stocking up on items over the entire year. It is safer, more efficient and less expensive than waiting until disaster strikes.

Housing & Financial Assistance

We provide the following resources:

  • Locate temporary or long-term housing and other immediate needs.
  • Donated and discounted furnishings to make their current living conditions more comfortable.
  • Access to available resources to help alleviate the financial impact of an event.

FEMA & Insurance

We assist with navigating applications and accessing insurance benefits.

After-Storm Clean Up

We connect clients with volunteers to help with packing and unpacking, cleaning, sorting through items, documenting losses and more.
