Description

Reach Out America strives to be a resource of relief and hope where help is needed to alleviate suffering. During the aftermath of floods following tropical storm Allison, Reach Out America was one of numerous agencies to provide immediate disaster relief to individuals and businesses whoà ¢à  à  s property was destroyed. In conjunction with the City of Houston, the American Red Cross and other high profile agencies, Reach Out America, rose to action as a collaborative partner in a massive initiative to provide disaster relief by becoming an integral team member of Houstonà ¢à  à  s Long Term Recovery Task Force in assisting flood-relief efforts while concurrently supporting other established assistance initiatives.
