The catastrophic and historic impact of Hurricane Harvey will continue to impact communities for days, months, and potentially years to come. YWCA Houston and their city is no different.

YWCA Houston has been serving their community for over 110 years and continues to do so, helping 2,000 people each day. We already know that there are community members and YWCA staff who have lost everything.

We encourage you to make a donation to the YWCA Houston Hurricane Relief Fund, set up by YWCA Houston, to support their Meals on Wheels program, YWCA housing recipients, and staff who have been affected and/or displaced by the storm.

The YWCA Houston Hurricane Relief Fund will be used to help individuals and families begin to rebuild their lives through direct assistance with shelf stable food, furniture, housing and more.

YWCA Houston will also need volunteers once the roads are clear. Contact volunteer coordinator April Carson atacarson@ywcahouston.org or 713-868-9922.

We have been in touch with other YWCAs in the storm’s path and are relieved to hear that they are not experiencing severe damages. We will continue to monitor the situation in other YWCA communities.

YWCA is on a mission, and now is the time to help make a difference in the greater Houston community.
