For Volunteers Wanting to Help

The State of Texas is asking volunteers to not self-deploy to communities affected by Harvey. To ensure volunteer safety, as well as the safety of disaster survivors, volunteers should only go into affected areas with a specific volunteer assignment, proper safety gear and valid identification.  Currently, potential volunteers are asked to register with a voluntary or charitable organization of their choice.
