Greater Houston Grassroots Relief

We're a grassroots coalition of groups from the greater Houston community coming together to offer direct support to our neighbors most impacted by #HurricaneHarvey. We believe in helping each other instead of relying on corporations or the State which clearly do not have our best interests at heart. We need your help to respond to this crisis! Please consider a generous donation today. Even $10 makes a difference. 

My name is Natalie Ruiz and I have many friends and family who are affected by the hurricane. We are working with a growing coalition of organizations and individuals in Houston and the surrounding areas. Groups in this coalition include:

Solidarity Houston
S.H.A.P.E. Center
Campaign Nonviolence Houston
Houston Peace & Justice Center
Houston Anarchist Black Cross
Black Lives Matter Houston Chapter
Resilient Nacogdoches
World On My Shoulders
Black Women's Defense League
Nosuco Tribe

(If your organization is doing frontline work in Houston or anywhere affected by this storm, we would like to hear from you as well.)

We are committed to being completely transparent with how funds are spent. Thank you for considering a donation to the Greater Houston Grassroots Relief Fund
