Hurricane Harvey – Houston Rebuild

About Our Houston Rebuild Project

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the initial response, NECHAMA is transitioning into a recovery program to assist storm-affected families to rebuild after this historic storm. Our project will be focused in and around the greater Houston community.

We will be providing services including installing drywall and insulation – as well as other basic repairs to homes.

Support Our Work

Volunteer with us in Houston

Starting in April, we are accepting volunteers to join our efforts. NECHAMA welcomes volunteers, from around the world, with a passion to help others regardless of religious faith or background. No previous disaster rebuild experience is necessary- our skilled team leaders will teach you everything you need to know to make a difference.

Whether you’re local and want to join us for a day, or from around the country and want to spend a week with our team, we provide opportunities to engage in Tikkun Olam and assist storm-affected families.
