In the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s devastating landfall in Texas, The New York Foundling felt compelled to help.
As a social services organization dedicated to aiding our society’s most vulnerable community members, we feel it’s an extension of our mission to reach a helping hand to those suffering nearby in Texas.
The New York Foundling’s leadership is directing a total of $15,000 in funding to two charitable organizations aiding in the relief effort: Texas Diaper Bank, which supports children and families, and Portlight Strategies, which supports individuals with disabilities.
Additionally, The Foundling’s Evidence-Based Programs are leading an effort to help in the Houston recovery by partnering directly with Houston-based retailer Gallery Furniture, which has turned its stores into shelters for those displaced by the storm.
In the past, The New York Foundling has directed funding to other charitable organizations during natural disasters, including the typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, the earthquake in Haiti and Hurricane Katrina.
