As the disaster from Harvey unfolds the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is already on the scene in Texas and has structures and skills as first responders and cleaner-uppers over the long haul.

Please keep in mind the following statement from the Society.

This is just one of the many domestic disasters National Disaster Services of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is responding to. With your help and the help of SVdP Conferences and Councils, we will be armed with the needed resources.

One of the most important resources is to ensure the Domestic Disaster Fund is sufficient to help during these times of crisis. These funds will help to support SVdP Domestic Disaster resources needed to respond to disasters across the United States. With the increasing number of disasters, you can help ensure there are adequate resources to assist our neighbors in need.

You can help, and your Conference and Council can help by making a donation to the SVdPUSA Domestic Disaster Fund.

Immediate needs are for support of the local Disaster Rapid Response Teams, Disaster Case Management services, cash gift cards for families, temporary shelter and eventually  the House in a Box® Program (90-120 days at a minimum out) the above are the most critical.
