Summary

The Northeast Houston neighborhoods we serve were some of the hardest hit by the floods. In response to the damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, Target Hunger will coordinate with our community partners, faith partners and governmental agencies to distribute food, water, essential supplies and information from multiple service sites to our neighbors in need. Since Target Hunger operates in neighborhoods that are "food deserts", our role in the recovery effort is a critical one.

Challenge

Even though the worst of Hurricane Harvey has passed, its effects are still being felt within our communities. 122,000 homes in the Houston area have been damaged, leaving almost 20,000 Houstonians still displaced and reliant on volunteer efforts and government assistance for food, water, and shelter. Neighborhoods in the Northeast area of Houston were some of the hardest hit, and with many of the communities in the area being food deserts prior to Harvey, our efforts are needed more than ever.

Solution

As the majority of our resources are reserved for our existing clients, this campaign will allow us to reach more residents within our communities that we would not normally have the resources to accommodate. We will provide nutritious food packages, water, and household supplies to residents in Northeast Houston who have been effected by Hurricane Harvey.

Long-Term Impact

The campaign will help hundreds of Houstonians that would not normally receive our services, and ease some of the burdens they have so they can focus on rebuilding their lives.
