United Way of Greater Houston and Greater Houston Community Foundation stood together to
support those in our community who have been impacted by COVID-19 and the resulting economic
crisis. In March 2020, we established the Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund to ensure the most
vulnerable in our community affected by COVID-19 have access to food, health care, shelter, and other
basic necessities to sustain them in this crisis.
Recognizing the dire hardships created by the extreme winter weather in February 2021, Houston
Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Lina Hildalgo established the Houston Harris Country
Winter Storm Relief Fund (HHC-WSRF) to help our region’s most vulnerable neighbors during a critical
time of need. To support these efforts, Mayor Turner and Judge Hidalgo enlisted Greater Houston
Community Foundation and United Way of Greater Houston.
