Hurricane Harvey is on record as the second costliest tropical cyclone, behind Hurricane Katrina, to ever impact the United States, with an estimated $125 billion in damage.- CHILDREN AT RISK & Save the Children
Children's Resiliency Collaborative
Shortly after Hurricane Harvey impacted the Greater Houston area, Children at Risk, the Houston Food Bank, Mental Health America of Greater Houston, Collaborative for Children, Texas Children’s Hospital and a few other nonprofits began meeting to ensure that children were prioritized throughout the recovery process. Over time, this group grew to over 40 nonprofit and government agencies that formed the Hurricane Harvey Children’s Recovery Collaborative (HHCRC) meeting on a bi-weekly basis to collaborate, share resources and discuss the needs of children. Throughout the year, we held press conferences to spotlight the continued needs of children; hosted a legislative event in Austin; and in partnership with Save the Children, released a report: “Still At Risk: Children One Year After Hurricane Harvey”. Although a focus on children and their recovery is still needed, the group decided to transition to a new collaborative, focusing on all the needs of children, including those related to Harvey recovery.
