Matching Help with Those Who Need it
Created by Houston residents surrounded by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, this website is meant to match those who need help with those wanting to help.
Our goal is to match families affected by the storm with anything from home repairs to clean-up to tangible necessities (baby supplies, furniture, toiletries, etc.) and other resources, with donors and skilled workers looking to offer their services pro-bono or at a reasonable price. You'll also find links to reputable resources where you can get help, or donate your help, items or money.
