Hurricane Harvey is the worst flooding disaster in U.S. history.

With your support, we are working around the clock to get help where it is needed most.

Massive disasters like Hurricane Harvey create more needs than any one organization can meet on their own. The Red Cross is working very closely with the entire response community – government agencies, other non-profit groups, faith-based organizations, area businesses and others – to coordinate emergency relief efforts and get help to people as quickly as possible.

The Red Cross is committed to being a part of the long-term recovery effort in Texas. We realize there continues to be unmet needs, and the Red Cross is turning the focus of our resources to the next phase of recovery. This next phase will center on recovery support for households whose homes were destroyed or suffered major damage and need extra help. This includes additional financial assistance. We are working alongside community and government partners now to develop these longer-term plans and will share additional information in the next few weeks.

Because of the incredible generosity of our donors, we plan to commit additional significant resources to support efforts across the impacted areas on top of the more than $190 million already distributed. We are also ensuring funds are available to support community based long-term recovery efforts.
