GCLC Engages 275 Harvey Survivors in North, Northeast and Southeast Houston & Pasadena

After months of research on Houston disaster recovery systems, in which leaders learned there had been little movement from nonprofit agencies servicing clients, GCLC-prepared leaders organized 10 Hurricane Harvey Home Repair & Unmet Need Intake Sessions drawing 275 survivors from their congregations.  The popularity of the sessions revealed still-massive recovery needs, particularly in low-income communities.  Nearly 80% of all attendees lacked an active case manager or any communication with a recovery group prior to attending the sessions.  Leaders plan to put together more intake sessions, offering similar access to recovery resources, in hard-hit areas with great need.
