Since 1983, the Emergency Aid Coalition has been “boots on the ground” in Houston feeding and clothing families and individuals in need. Last year, before Harvey, the Emergency Aid Coalition touched the lives of 50,000 people in Houston.
We know our city. In the wake of Harvey, we know where there are thousands more that need help. Join with us to help them. People like you are building the bridge between despair and hope for families, and you make a difference in their lives.
Online donations can be made here. Checks can be mailed in or hand delivered. You will receive a tax receipt in the mail.
