RESTOREREBUILDREVITALIZE

2017-2018

Our recovery efforts commenced two days after the rain stopped, we organized and operated and emergency supply and food pantry at the Trinity Gardens Church of Christ with a team of committed volunteers for 4 weeks.  We received and distributed donated supplies from all over the United States  estimated at $250,000.  We deployed volunteers to deliver hot meals  and "Clean-Kits" equipped with mucking tools, contractors trash bags, masks, gloves and cleaning supplies to families stuck in the homes without power or running water in Lakewood, Verde Forest, Kashmere Gardens, Trinity Gardens and neighboring communities.  

We block walked these neighborhoods to assess emergent needs of the residents and in response to those needs our efforts quickly expanded to assisting families with locating volunteer groups to assist with clean-out, muck and gut and accessing long term recovery resources.

In November of 2017 we hosted the 1st Townhall meeting in Northeast Houston bring together city, state and federal agencies like FEMA, RedCross, SBA and the City of Houston to offer residents guidance on how to begin disaster recovery.

2018-2019

In January 2018 Northeast Next Door Redevelopment Council was formed as non-profit organization and received funding from Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund dispersed by the Greater Houston Community Foundation through a fiduciary agent to provide un-met needs assistance to Northeast Houston residents.

Harvey led to 41 counties in Southeast Texas being designated as federal disaster areas – one-third of Houston was completely flooded. An estimated 136,000 homes were damaged in Harris County (Houston) alone. Many of those homes in Kashmere Gardens, Trinity Gardens, Lakewood, Verde Forest and Pleasantville,  communities located in Northeast Houston.  Communities historically under-served and inhabited by low to moderate income residents.   

 

Damage in this region was even more varied than in Houston – not only were homes affected by storm surge and rising waters, but the high-speed winds damaged many trees and roofs. This caused top-down water damage, debris and tree hazards, and led to long-term struggles to keep homes dry.

 

As a result of Hurricane Harvey, NEHRC opened two programs case management and unmet needs assistance. In January, both programs transitioned into the Recovery phase, where we are working to connect homeowners with organizations that have rebuild funds to make the necessary repairs in their homes. Thanks to the support from our partners Greater Houston Community Foundation, we are continuing unmet needs assistance program to assist more families in 2019
