Challenge

It's hurricane season. As we know all too well here at COHI HQ in Texas, natural disasters like hurricanes disrupt healthcare services, electricity, food distribution placing vulnerable women and children directly in the eye of a storm of a different sort.

Solution

COHI aims to raise $500,000 in the second phase of recovery to: -Hire a team of evacuee women to coordinate COHI's relief efforts within the shelters in Austin and Houston -Cash grants to evacuees cover emergency housing and transportation costs for vulnerable women and children who've lost their homes and vehicles in the storm; -Cash grants to evacuees to cover costs associated with labor and delivery support and medical care for medically fragile kids

Long-Term Impact

Thousands are predicted to be affected first by the storm surge and then by flooding in the coming days and weeks. COHI is equipped and prepared to respond.
