About the organization

In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey unleashed unprecedented rainfall across Texas, causing severe wind and flood damage in the southeast of the state. Hundreds of thousands of Texas residents were impacted and found themselves in need of help to find a prompt, predictable, and efficient path home.
