All Hands and Hearts - Smart Response

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 26 and for nearly one week, it dropped roughly 33 trillion gallons of water, flooding a wide swath of the coast. Due to the widespread damage, we rapidly set up two programs, one in Aransas Pass where Harvey first hit; the other in Houston, a sprawling, densely populated urban area where thousands of families were affected.

WHAT WE’RE DOING NOW
Our teams are actively mucking and gutting homes, clearing debris, salvaging belongings and performing mold sanitizing, as we begin the transition to repairing flood damaged homes.

OUR TWO-YEAR COMMITMENT TO TEXAS
We understand that Texas has a long road ahead and All Hands and Hearts is all about staying for the long term, so we’re committing to be in Texas for at least two years. That’s what it takes to respond for families and communities after a disaster like Hurricane Harvey, so that’s what we do. We stay until the job is done.
