Austin Disaster Relief Network is comprised of nearly 200 Greater Austin churches and thousands of trained volunteers bringing hope into crisis. ADRN’s network enables and empowers church members to organize, prepare, mobilize, and respond quickly in the event of disaster, great or small. 

To help in this effort they have been providing:

  • Emergency Transportation Assistance: Mobilizing 4×4/Off-Road vehicles to transport emergency workers, goods and supplies to more critical sites
  • Emergency Warming Shelters: Mobilizing volunteers across 12 warming shelters in the Austin area to provide residents with a warm safe place to stay
  • Crisis Cleanup: Mobilizing volunteers across central Texas with the cleanup efforts in homes and outdoor debris
  • Provided showers and laundry services to those without water
  • Provided a Survivor Assistance Hotline

Feeding Texas is the largest hunger-relief organization in Texas. Together with 21 member food banks, they reach over 4 million Texans annually with food and resources and engage the state in the fight against hunger.

To help in this effort they have been providing:

  • Their network of food banks reaches every county in Texas — making them uniquely prepared to serve as a central point of contact for information, resources, and donations.
  • During a disaster, Feeding Texas mobilizes its network of food banks to provide millions of pounds of water and supplies to impacted communities. They also work with federal, state, and local officials throughout the response phase of a disaster to deliver additional food aid, coordinate, and maximize the impact of our food banks in the recovery zone.
  • Feeding Texas makes long-term disaster recovery efforts possible by helping to reimburse and replenish depleted food supplies, meet the increased demand for supplies and services that continue long after a disaster strikes, and prepare for the next disaster by building food bank capacity.

Rebuilding Together Houston is a core services organization that provides home repairs and modifications at no cost to low-income seniors, U.S. Military Veterans, homeowners with disabilities, and working families impacted by natural disasters in Houston/Harris County.

To help in this effort they have been providing:

  • Residents can immediately apply for assistance with emergency plumbing repairs to stop leaks and restore water service
