Hurricane Harvey help available

By Senator Robert Nichols

Hurricane Harvey brought unfathomable destruction to coastal and southeast Texas. I want to use this column to describe how you or your loved ones can get help or volunteer. To volunteer, visit the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster,, and they will pair you with an organization that will use you to do the most good for the hurricane victims. National VOAD members will be providing relief and recovery for years to come, and they will need your assistance.

I want to thank President Donald Trump and Gov. Greg Abbott for working quickly to help our region. Because the counties Harvey hit the hardest are within a Presidential Disaster Declaration area, Texans there are eligible for a range of services. Please visit and type in your full physical address of your home to see whether you are eligible for these services, called Individual Assistance.
