In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, Texas. Houston received 51 inches of rain in four days, causing $125 billion in damages to the city. Many residents are still feeling the emotional effects of Hurricane Harvey today. Our projects are focused on getting those who were affected by Hurricane Harvey mental health care and learning more about the effect natural disasters have on mental health.
