I watched the news reports from Texas and was horrified at the scale of this disaster. I grew up on the Jersey shore where I’ve been evacuated due to storms, but I have never seen this level of disaster. My heart goes out to the victims and I want to help.
There are many more local nonprofits, focusing on animals, elderly, children, and more. Here’s a list of suggestions from people in my network:
- United Way of Houston
- Covenant House (helping homeless youth)
- Homeless Coalition (coordinated agencies)
- PortLight “Inclusive Disaster Relief”
- SPCA of Texas
- Bayou Animal Services
- Galveston Animal Rescue Service
- Jewish Federation of Greater Houston
- Islamic Society of Greater Houston
- Texas Diaper Bank
