Throughout the past 21 months, Trusted World had provided over $18,000 worth of mattresses and over $19,000 in refrigerators, ranges, and microwaves to individuals and families in Houston. And close to $20,000 in kitchen equipment and beds to Port Arthur as well as another $10,000 in roofing materials to assist families without insurance after Hurricane Harvey devastated their homes. The total is over $88,000 in housing resources provided to those in need.

Today, our disaster relief fund is almost gone. Trusted world needs your support to continue to monitor and assist the people who are still struggling to rebuild their lives.

It's hard to believe, but it has been seventeen months since Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas.

For many, the rebuild has been completed, for others, it continues. Many of the families we visited months ago have picked up the pieces and now are back in the groove of work and school after dealing with the loss of so many valuables - cars, homes, and irreplaceable family heirlooms. While others still struggle with the day to day needs.

Trusted World is still here, helping those families with the assistance of Bread of Life in Houston. This past month, Trusted world delivered clothing, food, drinks, snacks, socks, air mattresses, towels, and pillows.

Trusted World is grateful for the support we received this past year. To all of those individuals and families who continue to donate to our disaster relief fund, rest assured we are putting those funds to good use.

The Dallas County VOAD chose Trusted World as the non-profit to handle all of North Texas donations during the days leading up to and after Hurricane Harvey. Over $380,000 in cash and $19 million in in-kind goods were donated to help the victims. Today, Trusted World continues to monitor the situation and provides support as needed.

It appears as if Houston has cleaned up, and everyone is going back to work and living their life again. But the need remains, it takes time to rebuild, and Trusted World is committed to being there for at least two more years.

Trusted World works with local agencies, such as Bread of Life to ensure the individuals who need us the most receive the support they need to rebuild their lives. Currently, Trusted World is supplying clothing and nonperishable food to Help I'm Hurting in Port Arthur to help stabilize those in need. 

Trusted World is currently in Phase 2 – 4 months to 2 years

During Phase 2 Trusted World will continue to monitor the basic needs and provide resources as needed. The new focus will be on building supplies, tools, and logistics. Monitoring and ensuring the correct and necessary tools are received to ensure the rebuilding process continues. If necessary, Trusted World will open up donations again to gather the needed items. 

This process is known as the stabilization process.

Trusted World is continuing to Help People Help People.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast on August 25, 2017, with winds topping 130 mph. One year later the families affected by the storm are still rebuilding their lives.

Extraordinary efforts have been made by Trusted World to focus on some of the hardest hit areas, such as Port Arthur and Dickinson, Texas. As time passes, Trusted World continues to meet with organizations focused on ensuring the individuals and families struggling to put their lives back together can rebuild.

Trusted World is dedicated to the needs of the community. We will only send what is needed when it is needed most. Michael Garrett, CEO of Trusted World stated, “During my last visit to the Houston, Port Arthur areas, I was amazed at how many people are not living in their homes. Many people are either living in a trailer in their front yard or staying with family and friends as they are rebuilding their homes. Many houses in the Port Arthur area had 8’ or more of water. This required everything on the first floor to be ripped out and thrown away.”

In April, Trusted World provided a $22,000 grant to Shalom Builders to conduct mold inspections to ensure the health and safety of those families. In addition, Trusted World sent twenty (20) queen and forty (40) twin mattress sets with frames, twenty (20) Refrigerators, seven (7) 30” Electric FSR Self Clean Coil Range and thirteen (13) 30” Gas Range ovens, twenty (20) over the range microwaves along with the connectors and cords necessary for each to Help I’m Hurting who in turn distributed the items to families without flood insurance living in Port Arthur. In addition, Trusted World delivered twenty (20) queen and forty (40) twin mattress sets with frames, twenty (20) Refrigerators, seven (7) 30” Electric FSR Self Clean Coil Range and thirteen (13) 30” Gas Range ovens, twenty (20) over the range microwaves along with the connectors and cords necessary for each to Houston.

On August 15, 2018, Michael Garrett, Trusted World CEO returned to the Houston area to deliver airconditioning units to Bread of Life.  On, August 17, 2018, and an additional 20 queen and 20 twin bed sets will arrive in Houston. All items will be distributed to the families in need through Bread of Life on behalf of Trusted World.   Through our partnership, the Bread of Life Mobile Tool Bank is assisting 137 Senior Citizen rebuild after the storm.

On July 24th, GlobalGiving approved a $50,000.00 grant to be given to Trusted World Foundation for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.   The grant will assist Trusted World as we continue to help families in need rebuild Port Arthur.
