Houston / Gulf Coast Hurricane Harvey Relief

Hurricane Harvey has devasted the coast of Texas and flooded the city of Houston and many other cities. We are sharing a list of resources for those affected by the disaster and for thos who want to provide mutual aid and solidarity. We strongly recommend that you research relief and aid organizations before donating money. Locals can always tell you which organizations are the most helpful to them.

You can use Charity Navigator to research aid and solidarity groups and projects.
