Hurricane Harvey was one of the most devastating weather events in the continental United States. It destroyed the homes of hundreds of thousands and tragically disrupted the lives of millions of Gulf Coast residents by dropping an estimated 27 trillion gallons of water and over 50 inches of rain during a span of six days across southeast Texas and Louisiana.
Over 70,000 people were rescued, 33 Texas counties were under federal disaster declaration, and the estimated amount of financial loss was around $75 billion. While the amount of loss is daunting, the amount of love that continues to be shown to the region is overflowing.
HOPE worldwide has and continues to be a mighty source of this love and the HOPE worldwide Singles Disaster Corps in Houston, Texas will be a dynamically impacting volunteer trip to aid in the recovery efforts from this storm.
More than 130,000 residences have been damaged or destroyed across the vast Houston area. Volunteers on this Disaster Corps will engage in high-impact disaster relief efforts remediating and restoring the homes and lives that have been affected. Prior to the beginning of the Singles Corps, volunteers will have the opportunity to attend the regional HOPEww conference taking place on Saturday, February 24, 2018 in Houston. The designated arrival date for the Singles Corps is Sunday, February 25, 2018. We will spend the week serving and loving residents in need alongside other brothers and sisters from around the various HOPEww chapters.
We pray you choose to join this "Texas Strong" volunteer relief effort in Houston!
