Help Seekers

If you or someone you know needs help, dial 211.

A free, confidential helpline operated by United Way of Greater Houston, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, the 211 Texas/United Way HELPLINE connected more than 1.2 million of our neighbors with help in 2022. Top calls were for utility assistance, rent and mortgage assistance, housing, public benefits assistance, and food assistance.

211 Texas/United Way HELPLINE is our community’s go-to information resource before, during, and after natural disasters, connecting people in need with up-to-the-minute information and critical services.

Whether you need help finding child care, food stamps, care for an aging parent, or a haven from domestic violence, 211 is the number to call when you don’t know who to call.

Be Prepared for the Next Disaster

Don't Get Caught Off-guard

Being properly prepared for a big storm or natural disaster is crucial. It’s important to take the proper steps well before any potential disaster strikes. By being prepared, you can help ensure the safety and well-being of yourself and your loved ones.



A gift to the Greater Houston Disaster Alliance will help build infrastructure to strengthen year-round disaster preparedness, response, and recovery efforts and ensure that Greater Houston has the social service network and systems in place to respond rapidly, equitably, and effectively in times of disaster. 

As of May 21, 2024 the Greater Houston Disaster Alliance has activated the Severe Weather & Derecho Recovery Fund. Learn more here.

Donations will support the most vulnerable populations in need and the nonprofit organizations that effectively serve them in times of disaster. We encourage you to give directly to any specific health and human service providers you would like to support.

No. United Way of Greater Houston and Greater Houston Community Foundation do not accept supplies or other in-kind donations.

We’re all in this together. We encourage you to visit Volunteer Houston for a robust list of nonprofit organizations that are seeking volunteers.
