# Hope Rebuilds
Thanks to the immense courage of the U.S. military, the unrelenting resolve of first responders, and the generosity of thousands of volunteers, tens of thousands of Americans impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have been rescued and provided with much-needed emergency relief.
But, for many, the recovery process will take years.
That's why MPPH is working with a network of volunteers and aid organizations on-the-ground to help rebuild in Florida and Texas.
Our Plan to Help
With tens of thousands of homes damaged by rain, wind, and flooding, there's an overwhelming need for long-term financial support. Our partners on-the-ground have identified 835 homes in the Houston area alone that are in desperate need of repair.
Our partner on-the-ground has developed a system to identify, prioritize and address the most pressing needs in the most efficient way possible.

The Most Powerful Hurricane to Hit Texas in 50 Years
In less than a week, Houston was swallowed by 49.2 inches of rainfall—the largest downpour from a single tropical system to ever hit the U.S. mainland.
The impact already has been extreme.
Today, more than 30,000 people are homeless. Tens of thousands are without power. Estimates place the damage wreaked by the storm at more than 20 billion dollars. Decimated by the wind and rain, more than half of this year's cotton harvest—a staple for the Houston area economy—has been lost.
9 years ago, the Gulf Coast of Texas was ravaged by Hurricane Ike. Recovery efforts lasted for 6 months to repair the damage.
In the aftermath of Hurrican Harvey, experts are predicting the recovery effort to last for 12 months or more.
Sadly, our contacts on the ground have assured is that the media hasn't exaggerated the storm's impact. The scope of the work to be done to rebuild Houston and the surrounding area is staggering.
