Shocked by the devastation of Hurrican Harvey on the South Texas Coast this weekend, including the hard hit Houston metro area and not sure how you can help?
The Montrose Center, Houston’s LGBTQ Center has set up a fund you can contribute to in order to assist LGBTQ residents who lost homes and possessions in the storm. The Hurricane Harvey LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund will help fund direct assistance to those who need it most.
The catastrophic and historic impact of Hurricane Harvey will be felt by the LGBTQ community of Houston Texas for days, months, and potentially years to come. Help our LGBTQ community members displaced by the storm today by giving to the LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund, managed by the Montrose Center – Houston’s LGBcounseling and community center serving Houston for 39 years.
With more than 35,000 clients in core programs we are already learning of staff and community members who have lost everything.
The LGBTQ Disaster Relief Fund will be used to help individuals and families begin to rebuild their lives through counseling, case management, direct assistance with shelf stable food, furniture, housing and more. The Center’s dedicated case management team is on call to help homeless youth, seniors, people living with HIV, hate crime survivors, and those devastated by the storm.
For volunteer opportunities please visit: http://www.montrosecenter.org/hub/volunteer-2-2/
While the Montrose Center will focus primarily on empowering the LGBTQ community to rebuild after the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey, we serve all people in need regardless of their sexuality.
If someone (1 or 2 persons) of the LGBT community are in need of shelter my dad is opening up his home in Corpus Christi, Texas. We know what it is like to not have anyone to go to when the time is needed. We are here to help! Please email me if you’re in need of a place to stay till you get back on your feet.
