Disaster Relief-Hurricane Harvey

Disaster Relief-Hurricane Harvey

Summary

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.

Challenge

On August 26, Hurricane Harvey struck and devastated the Gulf Coast, including Corpus Christi, Port Aransas, Rockport, and continues to affect Houston. While San Antonio was not nearly as impacted as other Texan cities, the destruction Hurricane Harvey caused areas proved enormous. Designated by the National Diaper Bank as the main diaper bank in Texas, TXDB has assumed this role in serving communities deeply impacted--particularly the evacuees that have come to San Antonio from the Gulf Coast.

Solution

The project will initially go to relieve the immediate assistance that all the communities affected by Harvey will need.

Long-Term Impact

With any natural disaster, much of the work continues after first response. Displaced, many of these families may require assistance anywhere from 2-6 months from now to provide a continuum of care to these individuals. TXDB will also use grant funds to quickly procure additional diapers, wipes, and pull-ups.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
