The goal of our repairs is to provide a stable living environment. This means we may not be able to bring a home to its previous state.

Our goal is to get homeowners affected by Harvey back into their own stable, livable home. The home may not be able to be returned to its pre-storm condition.
Our partners can repair homes in the City of Houston and/or Harris County that were damaged by Hurricane Harvey.
Within the 100-year floodplain, repairs are generally limited to less than half of the property value, per permitting standards.
At this time, our partners can't repair mobile and manufactured homes, duplexes (non-single family homes), condos or townhomes. Furthermore, our partners will not do demolition, full rebuilds, or home elevation.
Repairs to resolve issues that pre-date Harvey and items deemed minor/cosmetic (trim, paint, cabinet doors, baseboards, interior doors, slow drains, etc.) may not be considered. Structural damage (foundations, roofs, load bearing walls, etc.) is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Note: If you have any questions about what income documents are acceptable for the application, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can work together to find the appropriate documentation for your circumstances.

We encourage speakers of languages other than English or Spanish to work with one of our disaster case management partner organizations who have multiple language capabilities in order to access services.
Harvey Home Connect was created by a grant from the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund (HHRF). Since then, HHC has also received a grant from Global Giving to help enable its expansion beyond Harris County.
After receiving an overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and companies who wanted to help, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and former Harris County Judge Ed Emmett established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which accepted tax-deductible flood relief donations for victims that were affected by the storm. The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Greater Houston Community Foundation (GHCF) is one of Houston's largest grant makers and provides individuals, families, corporations, foundations, and advisors with the ability to reach beyond what they could have ever imagined to expand philanthropic impact.
