INDIVISIBLE HOUSTON Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Help Rebuild Houston – #ResistHarvey

Donate to Houston to #ResistHarvey

Indivisible Houston and other organizations in the Houston area are following the lead of Gulf Coast Red Cross by donating time and money to relief efforts. 

Houston has had some hard luck with rain over the past few years:

Yet as hard as Houstonians get hit by storms, they resist and recover from the damages just as hard. Never has there been a stronger outpouring of love, support, and collaboration in the Houston area as there is after a storm or flood. We care about each other, and it shows, especially in our darkest moments.

To continue that proud tradition of standing by our community in times of need, we will prepare for and deliver cleanup and restitution as part of a coordinated effort with cleanup groups in Houston to those in need in the wake of what looks to be a ferocious natural disaster.

To help rebuild, please donate to one of the wonderful charities working to help affected communities recover. 

There are shelters and organizations set up around the city that could use assistance. Shipments of goods are not going to help for a while unless they have resource backers, such as some of the larger grocery stores, to help bring them in. There will be time for that later.

Right now, people on the ground need MONEY to operate.

Here are some ways to give. We will update this list with more over time.
