With the widespread flooding occurring recently, people across our region are dealing with immediate and urgent challenges – and Catholic Charities is here to provide emergency relief and recovery for our most vulnerable neighbors. We need your immediate help and support.
We expect to receive high numbers of calls for home repairs, basic needs and help with necessities due to lost wages. Following the May storms last year, Catholic Charities provided case management, direct assistance, and home repairs for hundreds of people, and we expect a similar situation as flood waters continue to rise this week. These flood situations result in homelessness, loss of critical vehicles, complete loss of belongings, inability to get medications and food – very critical challenges – and recovery can take weeks and months.
Please help us assist the poor and vulnerable by donating online now. Your immediate gifts ensure we can provide essential help without delay to seniors, single mothers, refugees and others in need across the Galveston-Houston region. You can also donate gift cards, or check out our in-kind donation page for other ideas on how to support those in need. Together, we can serve as Jesus, honoring each person with dignity and respect.
Our thoughts are with those impacted by the flooding. We wish everyone a safe and speedy recovery.
Thank you for supporting the Catholic Charities disaster response fund today!
