“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Ps 46:1

Catholic Charities is committed to providing Disaster Response and Disaster Recovery services. This means first meeting emergency needs such as shelter, food, and medication assistance for those who have lost everything.

But it also means long-term recovery efforts, helping people rebuild their lives by finding new permanent housing, repairing their homes, replacing furniture, clothing, and regaining a sense of security and self-sufficiency. We do this through collaboration with other area Disaster Relief agencies, and by working with the Mayor’s office on their disaster recovery plan.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this request. You are an important member of the Houston community, and we are hopeful that you will help us meet the needs of our neighbors who have been affected by this devastating storm.
