Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund

We are deeply grateful to the 2,000+ individual donors, as well as more than 75 UU congregations who have collectively contributed in excess of $350,000 to the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund. Our friends and neighbors in Florida and the Caribbean have experienced similar devastation following Hurricane Irma and need as much, or even greater, assistance. We invite you to contribute to the Hurricane Irma Recovery Fund.

The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) has joined with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) to establish the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund.

Half of all funds raised will go to at-risk populations served by UUSC partners and the other half of the funds will support Unitarian Universalist congregations and members of those congregations most affected by the storm. UUA staff are working closely with leaders in the Association's Southern Region to learn where the need is greatest and distribute funds efficiently.

UUSC is supporting long-time partner RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), a Texas-based organization that provides direct legal services and education on the rights of immigrants. In the aftermath of Harvey, it is crucial that immigrant communities—documented and undocumented—know their rights and have access to legal services.
