Hurricane Harvey Relief:

What’s Happening and How to Help

Hurricane Harvey caused record-breaking flooding in Houston and the surrounding areas, causing widespread damage. Several of GlobalGiving’s local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors’ immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

The projects below, as part of GlobalGiving’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, will provide emergency funding to locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to help survivors.

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.

Projects responding to Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey Children's Relief Fund
Flooding, heavy rains and tornados related to Hurricane Harvey continue to put millions at risk, including nearly 3 million children in the Houston area. Save the Children's emergency responders are on the ground helping kids and families. Save the Children knows from decades of experience that children are the most affected in the wake of emergencies and disasters, and often their needs fall through the cracks. Children need to be a priority-Save the Children is on the ground responding.
Help Texas Recover after Hurricane Harvey
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.
Direct Relief Responding to Harvey in Texas
Direct Relief is providing essential medicines and supplies to health centers throughout Texas that are treating people affected by the storm and subsequent flooding. People who have evacuated or lost their homes often leave without their critical medicines, so Direct Relief is working to ensure that people remain healthy.
Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund
Hurricane Harvey has caused widespread, catastrophic flooding and damage in Texas and along the Gulf Coast. This fund will 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.
Target Hunger Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund
The Northeast Houston neighborhoods we serve were some of the hardest hit by the floods. In response to the damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, Target Hunger will coordinate with our community partners, faith partners and governmental agencies to distribute food, water, essential supplies and information from multiple service sites to our neighbors in need. Since Target Hunger operates in neighborhoods that are "food deserts", our role in the recovery effort is a critical one.
Assist 1,000 Houston Hurricane Harvey Households
The Hurricane Harvey Relief Funds awarded to the Coalition will provide furniture and household items to 1,000 households of Hurricane Harvey victims moving from congregate shelter locations to apartment units where they will be able to regain some semblance of normalcy needed to advance their recovery. These displaced individuals/families are receiving 6 months of rental assistance but have no means to establish a household or to make a house, a functioning home.
Disaster Relief-Hurricane Harvey
Donors should care because natural disasters are not just immediate occurences--they affect lives in the long-term. Families are losing everything they have--their houses and food. Texas Diaper Bank fills the gap for an often-ignored item: diapers. Diapers impact babies, children with disabilities, and seniors.
Disaster Relief - Distribution Resources
Trusted World is a non-profit designated to receive in-kind donations for Hurricane Harvey victims and is based in the Dallas area.

Trusted World needs your help. Physical assets are in abundance, but funding is dearly needed.
Hurricane Harvey Psychological Support for Victims
Disasters like Hurricane Harvey devastate young and old, partners and families, immigrants, refugees, and native residents alike. These people have lost their homes and businesses or are first responders who experience their own trauma. Real Medicine Foundation has an excellent track record in psychotrauma support and is collaborating with Organizational Resilience International (a partner since Hurricane Katrina) to implement a 3-phase psychotrauma support project for affected communities.
BakerRipley/ Hurricane Harvey Relief
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.

by IsraAID
This project will provide emergency relief, psychosocial support, and debris removal assistance to communities in South Texas affected by Tropical Storm Harvey.
Hurricane Relief for Children in Texas and Florida
When we think about disaster recovery, we tend to think about hunger, homelessness, and clean water. Diapers are an overlooked, yet crucial, basic need. All babies deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused widespread flooding and severe damage in Texas and Florida. This fund will provide diapers at no cost to our partner agencies here in the United States, who are recovering and rebuilding.
