In the wake of the incredible devastation our city has experienced and endured, we continue to see inspiring examples of what our community can do when we support one another. As Houston works together to recover from the flooding, UAHT will continue our work to fight human trafficking.
Now more than ever, help is required on the streets of Houston to provide resources to victims of human trafficking. We cannot allow these circumstances to create a vacuum of vulnerability within the community and we cannot do it alone.
We are proud to be recipients of the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund established by Mayor turner and Harris County Judge Emmett. The fund is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation and will allow UAHT to provide services and assistance to victims of human trafficking impacted by the disaster event. Our outreach to immigrant, refugee, and homeless populations provide essential job safety education, human trafficking information, community resources, and hygiene products. These efforts help to identify and prevent instances of trafficking. We are thankful for their support and the many other organizations working together to rebuild our resilient city after Harvey.
