Houston Helping After Harvey
Since Hurricane Camille in 1969, Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) has worked to coordinate all local religious, other non-profits and government agencies with one another as we all identify resources and avoid duplication in our efforts to restore communities hit by disasters.
If you are working as a non-profit in a Harvey flooded community you are invited to join the VOAD community of others working toward the goal of restoring the lives of those affected by Harvey. ‘
To begin, go to HoustonHelpsAfterHarvey.org and fill out a survey to join the greater community of Harvey helpers.
Also, anyone looking for those who have signed up to volunteer or for those wishing to volunteer, go to volunteerhouston.org.
Welcome to the Harris County Recovery Network Website
In the event of a disaster or other emergency, this is your information hub for the weeks and months after the immediate emergency passes and recovery begins. If the emergency creates the need for shelters, food and water distribution or longer term housing we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction. This is NOT the best source of information before and during an emergency.
The Harris County office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management will coordinate with the local news outlets before and during the actual emergency. The Harris County Recovery Network is here to serve you in the in the weeks, months and even years beyond the immediate emergency. Meanwhile, we hope you take the time to review this information from lessons learned after past emergencies.
