August 2017 – Present / Houston, Texas
Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a category 4 hurricane, bringing unprecedented destruction to Texas. Harvey was named the most powerful hurricane to hit the US since 2005, superseding Hurricane Sandy. The recovery is going to be long and hard; that’s why All Hands Volunteers has committed to being on the ground for at least two years, helping families recover from this disaster. We need your support, through donations and offers to volunteer.
We are currently offering FREE flights within the U.S. to volunteers who commit to spending at least 2 weeks with us in Texas. Apply now or email email@example.com for more information.
This is the fourth time that All Hands Volunteers has responded in the Gulf Coast region of Texas in the last two years alone. That makes this response personal for us.
Initially, our teams were operating in Fort Bend County, Harris County, and Aransas Pass, knee deep in mucking and gutting, mold sanitation, chainsaw work and debris removal – the first big leaps toward getting families back into their homes. Another team worked to operate the VRC (Volunteer Reception Center) in Aransas Pass, enabling volunteers to effectively plug into the response effort.
We are currently running two programs within Texas – Houston and Aransas Pass. Both programs have transitioned to recovery and teams will focus on ensuring disaster survivors are provided with the support needed in rebuilding their lives.
We understand that Texas has a long road ahead and All Hands Volunteers is committed for the long term. So we have committed to be in Texas for at least two years. That’s what it takes to Rebuild Hope for families and communities after a disaster like Hurricane Harvey. So that’s what we do; we stay until the job is done.
Please donate today to help the thousands of families who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. All donations will be used to help victims recover and rebuild over the difficult weeks and months to come.
