Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday 25 August, 2017 as a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds of 130mph. Making a total of 3 landfalls, Harvey damaged/destroyed roughly 185,000 homes, impacting millions of people.

Our US Response team immediately jumped into action. We have multiple teams in Texas who are mucking and gutting homes, cutting down trees and clearing debris. As we transition into recovery, we will rebuilding homes, including installing insulation and drywall, painting, and basic carpentry.

Texas has a long road ahead, and All Hands and Hearts have committed to the long term to help survivors recover and rebuild. To make it easier for volunteers to join us, it is completely free to volunteer, and we provide free accommodation and meals for each work day. Additionally, if you are able to volunteer for two weeks or more, we can provide a round-trip flight from participating airports in the US to aid with the costs of traveling. No construction experience is necessary - just an eagerness to work hard for a good cause!

Spots are filling up quickly, so join us today!
