Challenge

Hurricane Harvey leaves in its wake tens of thousands of people homeless and without everyday necessities of life such as food, clothing, medicine, and shelter. BakerRipley, a pioneering community development organization that has impacted and transformed neighborhoods across the Greater Houston region for 110 years, will help to bridge the gap between survival and recovery.

Solution

BakerRipley is operating the NRG Center Emergency Shelter, in partnership with NRG, City of Houston and Harris County, providing the immediate necessities (food, water, shelter, clothing, support resources) to stabilize the lives of those displaced by Hurricane Harvey. After the flood waters recede, we are responsible for assistance with long term recovery. In collaboration with other agencies, we pick up after the initial emergency responders and work on helping people restart their lives.

Long-Term Impact

Thousands of displaced neighbors receiving the resources needed to recover from the immediate danger. We employ service connectors who can help people: Navigate systems (emergency assistance, insurance, etc), Secure employment, Making the right decisions about their homes and property, Find educational opportunities. By using our existing centers, systems and relationships to reach people, funds for recovery go directly to programs for people, so they can earn, learn and belong. No Matter What.
