The strain on families during disasters is astounding and Upbring Disaster Response will walk alongside all who come to us for help. While it’s impossible to assess the full scope of destruction in the early stage of a crisis, we know the process of rebuilding lives will certainly linger long after the land is dry. And we also know that there are tens of thousands of families in need.
Volunteer Opportunities – Texas
Hurricane Harvey: While it is too early for volunteer efforts to begin, volunteers will be needed in the near future and for years to come. Please do not self-deploy without an identified need and confirmed plan. It is important for all volunteers to be self-contained and self-reliant as to not put an additional strain on the local communities.
As Hurricane Harvey’s devastation is still unfolding, it is premature for most general clean-up activities. The following are ways you can connect and prepare for possible deployment. As conditions become more stabilized and volunteers are needed to assist, we will post additional opportunities.
2015 Flooding: Blanco River Regional Recovery Team (BR3T): BR3T continues to provide recovery support to those impacted in the 2015 floods. Upbring Disaster Response provides construction management to this long term recovery program. To learn more and volunteer, please visit their website.
