After the destruction from Hurricane Harvey impacted so many families along the Texas Gulf Coast, we saw God move in mighty ways through the response of His people. We are truly thankful for all who served on disaster relief teams, coordinated relief efforts, donated materials, gave financially and more.

Long-Term Recovery Efforts:

If you would like to continue serving families in Port Arthur, please contact the local long-term recovery team at Help, I’m Hurting, Inc. Contacts include Cheryl Brewer, Executive Director and Dr. Randy Vaughn, Board Chairman and Sr. Pastor of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church.
