Since late August, too many families across the southern states of the U.S. have felt a true, raw sense of loss. Millions are displaced, and tens of thousands have lost their homes, cars, and sense of identity as the lives they'd created for and with their families washed away before their eyes.
In this same time period, people around the world have opened their hearts and wallets showing up for the vulnerable families impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and cared for by COHI. Due to YOUR generosity, COHI has given 160 cash grants to evacuee women in the last three weeks. We've also provided counselors to teenagers impacted by the storm and we've distributed thousands of dollars worth of supplies, medicine, food, and water.
COHI will continue to provide this kind of assistance to vulnerable women, newborns, medically fragile kids, and the members of the LGBTQ community impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma through the end of 2017.
