Catholic Charities USA is coordinating the mobilization of staff of its member agencies around the country who are prepared to travel to south Texas and Louisiana to supplement the services of the affected agencies with additional counseling, case management and emergency response services. As soon as it is possible to travel into the flood zone these volunteer Catholic Charities employees will deploy to the Arch/Dioceses of Galveston/Houston, Victoria, Corpus Christi, Beaumont, Lake Charles and other areas as needed.
The bishops of the United States have called for special collections to aid in Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. These donations are funneled through the National Office of Catholic Charities USA to be distributed as long term disaster recovery grants to agencies providing disaster recovery services.
If you’d like to make a donation to assist in the recovery efforts, please visit the www.catholiccharitiesusa.org. Your support is greatly appreciated.
