WHAT IS THE "FAR FROM FINISHED" CAMPAIGN?
Two years after Hurricane Harvey, thousands of families are still displaced or living in unrepaired homes and the number of volunteers engaging in the recovery effort has greatly dwindled. As a result, Houston Responds, and it's partner coalitions have launched the "Far From Finished" campaign to raise awareness of the crisis that still exists and to engage more volunteers through local churches to expedite recovery for families in need.
Local churches collectively represent a huge volunteer workforce and are uniquely positioned to know the needs of their communities. So, we are asking churches to join us by promoting the Far From Finished campaign within their congregations and actively participating in the recovery effort with their Houston Responds coalition. We have developed promotional campaign materials for church and are asking local churches to join us by promoting the campaign to their congregations to help get them engaged in volunteering. The work is Far From Finished, but together we can make a difference!
