Hurricane Harvey: Resources For Information and Donations

Our hearts and thoughts go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Seeing the devastation unfold over the past week hits particularly close to home, as we remember just how traumatic a storm like this can be. Knowing that so much of the burden of disaster takes place as communities start to rebuild, we want to share a few resources to learn more and links contribute to the relief and rebuilding effort. We will continue to update this list as more resources become available.
