In 2017, Hurricane Harvey caused widespread, catastrophic flooding and damage in Texas and along the Gulf Coast. This fund was created to provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from this storm.
Beginning as a tropical storm and fueled by unusually warm Gulf water, Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday, 25 August 2017, as a category 4 "major" hurricane, with wind speeds of 130 mph. Harvey's enormous destruction comes as a result of strong winds, torrential downpours, significant storm-surges and devastating flooding. Now considered to be one of the worst disasters to hit the US, All Hands Volunteers is responding to the millions of Texans reeling from the disaster.
BakerRipley has an important role in disasters. We are currently operating the Emergency Shelter at NRG Center in partnership with NRG, and Harris County, assisting thousands of neighbors in need. After the flood waters from Harvey recede, we are responsible for assistance with long term recovery. Working in collaboration with other agencies, we pick up after the initial emergency responders and work on helping people restart their lives.
