Texas Needs You

While the weather conditions have changed significantly, Texans are only just beginning to assess the damage caused by the winter storm and the loss of power across the state.
Your donation helps Texas family violence service providers and rape crisis centers repair critical infrastructure so they can get back to the important work of making their communities safer.

We expect the number of programs to grow as we hear from others that are still assessing damages or waiting on estimates. Please continue to check back as we will be updating the site regularly.

About | After the Storm

After the Storm is a direct relief project of Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) and Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) to support the full and rapid recovery of rape crisis centers and family violence service providers. Our goal is to promote access to safety and justice for survivors by linking donors directly to programs with critical disaster recovery needs. The winter storm that swept across the country caused waves of damage in Texas. Unprecedented low temperatures strained the limits of our power grid and resulted in blackouts and power outages, bursting pipes and flooding. The storm hit Texas rape crisis centers and family violence service providers across the state in communities where the emergency disaster response was already strained.  Infrastructure recovery efforts can temporarily reduce the capacity of programs to meet the needs of survivors seeking help and exacerbate systemic gaps. Through After the Storm, TAASA and TCFV hope to help close the gap that leaves survivors of violence exponentially vulnerable in the aftermath of disasters.
