Texas Catholic Church response to Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey is significantly impacting the Texas coastal area. The Catholic Church in Texas is coordinating its response through the bishops of the 15 dioceses. At this time cash contributions are of greatest need. Donations can be made to any Texas Catholic Charities or local St. Vincent de Paul Society. Money given to Catholic Charities outside of the coastal area or inland areas experiencing damage will be used to assist evacuees, or sent to dioceses directly affected.

The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops will continue to provide advisories as the storm develops and needs change. Follow @TXCatholic on Facebook and Twitter, and the website to stay updated on how you can assist those in need.

Donations accepted

At this time financial contributions provide the greatest immediate aid. See below for ways to donate either through local Catholic Charities or through a Catholic Charities in an impacted area.

Diocese of Amarillo

Diocese of Austin

Volunteers: Catholic Charities of Central Texas is seeking names and contact information for volunteers willing to lend their time and talent to its Disaster Response program. Volunteer roles will range from administrative to direct work with families impacted by the flood. Those interested should email Claire Bordelon at [email protected].

Financial donation: Families are going to need food, clothing and shelter. CCCTX finds the most effective way to help families is raise funds and then empower families to regain some sort of normalcy by being able to purchase their own food items, clothes, etc. In short, financial donations cut down on hidden cost and prevent delays in getting families exactly what they need to begin the recovery processes.

Services: For anyone impacted by the floods, please call CCCTX’s Disaster Number at 512.766.7111.
