How to Help Texas Today

HRC's thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We will stand with Texas and the entire region in the days, weeks and months ahead.

While we’ve watched the destruction unfold, we’ve also witnessed fellow Americans step up and show the true character of our country. Neighbors put their lives on the line to rescue one another. Everyday citizens became heroes by leading others to safety. And Texans have powerfully united to show immense strength through the darkest of hours.

At HRC, we know that when one community hurts, all of America hurts. That’s why we’re urgently supporting organizations with their recovery efforts. HRC leaders on the ground in Texas have suggested the following groups who are serving Texans:

  • HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF FUND. Officially established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Greater Houston Community Foundation, this fund is committed to delivering flood relief to victims both immediately and in the long term. DONATE NOW .
  • MONTROSE LGBTQ CENTER. Help LGBTQ individuals and families in Houston. The Center is dedicated to increasing their resources and outreach after this disaster. DONATE NOW.
  • ORGANIZACION LATINA DE TRANS EN TEXAS. OLTT serves transgender Latinas in Texas. Their targeted work is critical to reaching the transgender community in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. (Click the orange “Donate” button at the top of the page) DONATE NOW .
  • HOUSTON FOOD BANK. Help get meals to those in need across the Houston area. They are working tirelessly to serve displaced families but demand continues to surpass supply during this urgent time. DONATE NOW.

Thousands of HRC members and supporters call Texas home. They will be in our thoughts as they recover. But before that process can begin, we must have their backs in the days ahead. Will you join us by making a donation to fuel the critical work in serving those impacted by Hurricane Harvey? Please consider making a gift to the organizations listed above.
