Because of the devastating and widespread flooding already seen in the Greater Houston area from Hurricane Harvey, United Way of Wayne County urges anyone who wishes to make a direct financial donation to the relief effort to support the United Way of Greater Houston’s Flood Relief Fund. This Fund will help with the recovery needs of those most impacted. All monies raised by United Way of Greater Houston’s Flood Relief Fund will be used to help with both immediate, basic needs and long-term recovery services such as case management and minor home repair.
“Our first priority will be safety, shelter and basic needs such as food and essentials for those affected,” said Anna M. Babin, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Houston. “Once the community is stabilized, then United Way will focus on long-term recovery efforts. Since this situation is still unfolding, we realize the needs will be great.”
As a leading community resource in times of disaster, United Way of Greater Houston invests in first response efforts through its partnerships with organizations such as American Red Cross and The Salvation Army.
United Way of Greater Houston serves as the convening organization to bring together non-profit and community partners as well as civic and government stakeholders from throughout the Greater Houston area to coordinate recovery efforts, both assessing the needs and providing support where it is needed most.
