PLEASE HELP! DISASTER RELIEF UPDATES NEEDED!

Did you know that 600,000 families have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey? Did you also know that monies given to these families are about to run out and the holiday season is HERE. What happens to them? The recovery is STILL just beginning.

Today YOU can make a difference. 


Searching for individuals who want to make a strategic difference for the communities impacted by Harvey.

Share what you know! Learn! This role is about doing and telling! 

There are TWO ways to help:

1)    This role would primarily involve updating two online platforms with information about volunteer and donation needs and resources being offered by churches and nonprofits in the impacted areas or in other cities receiving displaced families. That will entail phone work, sending/receiving emails, and online research.

2)    (OR) Online research and phone calls to non-profits and churches getting updates, as NEEDS ARE CHANGING DAILY, and document the information on a live shared google document for churches to view and adopt communities to reach out and help. This is a HUGE part of the recovery process. It isn't just to muck out a home during Spring Break, it is walking alongside the families as they rebuild from the devastation. The needs are so high and the rates of divorce, suicide, and depression are increasing in the impacted areas. 


Qualifications: Willing to call non-profits and churches in the impact areas. Online Research. Attention to detail, thoroughness, organization, computer proficiency, data entry skills, smiles and great attitudes! (Rotating office hours with remote work as an option.) 


Times and Days are VERY flexible – 
any time you are willing to give, we will graciously accept. 

Available Roles

Anyone can help! Students, stay-at-home moms, retirees, veterans...anyone wanting to contribute to the Harvey recovery effort.
