Like many of you, we're ready sitting on the edge of our seats to help rebuild our communities across the Greater-Houston area, but the process can be complicated and daunting.  With so many non-profit organizations, and not enough capacity to truly coordinate grassroots outreach, we saw the need to create a platform to connect those wanting to volunteer, with those in the greatest need as they work to rebuild their homes.

From the home repair program at Houston's Habitat for Humanity, to our school uniform project, we're simplifying the process to turn our energy into action #AfterHarvey.  We'll need your help maintaining the infrastructure of our growing platform as more folks reach out online.

After choosing how you wish to contribute your time/money locally, we encourage you to share photos/screenshots on all social media platforms using the hashtag #AfterHarvey.

If you know of other organizations needing volunteers, or organizations wishing to join our growing #AfterHarvey coalition of organizations, shoot me an email: ddouglas@houstonjustice.org.

I've always said "Houston is the greatest city there ever was," now it's time to walk the walk.  

I hope you will, too.
