A year after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Gulf Coast the recovery process is far from over. Still At Risk: Children One Year After Hurricane Harvey previews the impact Harvey had on Texas children and current status of recovery efforts. During National Hurricane Preparedness month, CHILDREN AT RISK, Save the Children, and members of Hurricane Harvey Children’s Recovery Collaborative are pleased to share about the status of current recovery efforts as well as best practices and recommendations for future recovery.

CHILDREN AT RISK will be speaking out for the children and families impacted by Hurricane Harvey, making sure that local, state, and federal officials understand the devastation caused by the storm and flooding and focus on real solutions to these challenges. In order to better address the needs of affected children and families, C@R gathered local community and governmental organizations to convene the Hurricane Harvey Children’s Recovery Collaborative. Partner organizations are displayed below. To help support C@R efforts, you can donate here. Please specify that the donation is intended for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
