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
