Over 2 years after Hurricane Harvey unleashed catastrophic flooding on Port Arthur, TX, residents are still struggling to rebuild, both due to lack of access to a capable workforce and funding.

To assist Port Arthur, TX area residents still struggling to make necessary repairs to their homes, we have started project Helping Hands.

 

Helping Hands trains and employs community members to make necessary minor repairs to still damaged houses, so that families can return home safely.

Our long term goal is to produce a workforce that is disaster resilient and specialized in sustainable emergency repairs.
