Houston residents in need of assistance related to Harvey recovery who cannot come to the center are asked to call Texas 2-1-1 (877-541-7905) so a trained case manager can be made aware of their individual needs and connect them with recovery services.

These centers are NOT for FEMA assistance. There are still FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers open for FEMA specific issues. Please visit houstonrecovers.org and harrisrecovery.org for more information.
