Disaster Response, Relief, and Recovery for Texas United Ways

As communities across Texas look past Hurricane Harvey, United Way is there to help their communities in their recovery.  United Ways across the state are involved in local disaster recovery in a variety of ways - from coordinating their community’s response to ensure the most vulnerable have the help that they need to investing in their community’s first responders year-round such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army, so that they are poised to act quickly when a storm does arrive.  United Ways also invest in community partners to help individuals impacted with rebuilding their lives.  United Ways and their partner agencies are a critical part of a community’s short and long-term recovery from a storm like Harvey. 
 
United Ways across Texas have individually established relief funds to help support their community in the aftermath of Harvey. The devastation is tremendous and communities will need significant resources to recover, and rebuilding communities may take months and even years. United Ways look forward to assisting communities immediately, as well as during the long-term recovery process. 
 
Below are links to local United Way disaster relief funds throughout the state. Donating directly to one of these allows for those dollars to get into the hands of the community as soon as possible. If you would like to donate to multiple communities, there is also an option below to make a contribution to a single fund and those funds will be distributed throughout those areas of Texas in need.  
 
In many communities, United Way also supports their local 2-1-1 as a critical resource for their community.  If you or someone you know needs assistance, please call 2-1-1 or www.211texas.org.
 
Below are links to United Ways throughout Texas that are currently raising funds to aid the disaster recovery in their community. Thank you for your interest in learning how you can help Texans in need!
