Hurricane Harvey Relief and Recovery


Like so many others, Goodwill Houston has been seriously impacted by this disaster of historic proportions. We are cleaning up and preparing to get our operation up and running again.  At the same time, we are in conversations with disaster relief organizations about how we can help the most in the days ahead. We encourage you to support them.  

We have served the Houston area for more than 70 years. We have experienced and recovered from many disasters. What we have learned along the way is that we cannot mobilize as quickly or operate as effectively as first line disaster response and relief organizations. We have also learned that in disasters of this magnitude, it is important for everyone to participate by doing what they can do, and doing what they do best. 

Right now, massive relief efforts are being led by organizations who are experts in meeting immediate needs and managing resources in times of disaster.  As the Houston area recovers in the weeks and months ahead, Goodwill Houston will be here - helping our friends and neighbors get jobs, rebuild careers and move forward. 

We are all in this together, and we are much stronger than the storm. Here is a list of resources (if you need information or help), volunteer opportunities (if you want to help others), and agencies seeking donations (if you would like to give).
