Victims of Hurricane Harvey are at the beginning of a long process to recover from the storm. This road to recovery will be the longest for low-income Houstonians. AASC has been in contact with several of our colleagues in Houston, including Donna Dixon, member of AASC's Board of Directors and special assistant to the presidents & CEO of Houston Housing Authority (HHA).

With over 60,000 low- and very low-income residents, HHA is the largest provider of affordable housing in Houston. Many of these residents suffered crippling losses from Hurricane Harvey.

If you are looking to directly help these residents, HHA's nonprofit affiliate Houston Housing Resource is accepting charitable contributions that will go directly toward helping HHA residents rebuild their lives.

Donations may be made via PayPal or by check to Houston Housing Resource, Attn: Donna Dixon, 2640 Fountain View, Houston, TX 77057.

For more information, read a letter from Donna Dixon.

Additionally, AASC is monitoring the situation as Hurricane Irma continues to affect Florida, other southern states and the Caribbean. In the coming days, we will share organizations that will assist with Irma recovery.
