Since December, SHAPE has provided direct financial assistance to 39 families and individuals who were directly and indirectly affected by Hurricane Harvey. Out of the 39 recipients, 36 were new applicants.
Two recipients had previously received assistance via a $25 transportation stipend that SHAPE provided to the attendees of our Healing after Harvey event, in which mental health professionals provided services and referrals. Even though the event was in October, we are happy to know that the event did have impact and helped us reach out to people in need.
One of the recipients continues to receive assistance through vendor payments to a local hotel. He was displaced as a result of Harvey and has no other support structure in place. Through partnerships with other community organizations, SHAPE is helping him to get the case management he needs, so that he can work toward a permanent solution.
Four additional families and individuals were assisted through payments directly to vendors for home repair supplies and services.
