Challenge

The Montrose Center's Hurricane Harvey LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund is designed to provide services to those that are traditionally overlooked and have unique needs. For homeless LGBTQ youth, isolated seniors, and individuals who are HIV positive or transgender, a natural disaster resulting in the loss of homes, vehicles, wages from days of missed work, and restricted access to medical care could be the event that pushes an individual or family into financial crisis or homelessness.

Solution

Our experience managing, responding to, and developing programming that is responsive to the community's needs has developed extensively across our 39 year history as a community institution. Through culturally competent case management and direct financial support in response to client need, the Center is able to support community members impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support the self-sufficiency of 500 LGBTQ community members through bridging the financial and information gap between the needs of the general population and the LGBTQ community in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
