Houston Still Needs You!

The devastating flood caused by Hurricane Harvey was one of the most significant weather events in our city’s history. Few in Houston were left unaffected, and it’s a testament to our community that in our moment of need, neighbors helped neighbors without hesitation. The flood waters have receded and the trash piles have been picked up, but there are still many people who need help rebuilding their homes and their lives – Houston Still Needs You!
