Our Mission:

Restore
Houston

The Restoration Team (TRT) is a network of churches in West Houston dedicated to assisting families whose homes were damaged from flooding during Hurricane Harvey in 2017. We assist families in their recovery and engage the local church with their neighbors still in need of assistance. The Restoration Team helps coordinate the volunteer response with the needs of the family, primarily focusing on bringing the damaged home to a functional living condition.

Our Story

In the weeks and months after Hurricane Harvey devastated the Gulf Coast in August of 2017, many people were left asking the question of what to do next. During that time, we saw the people of Houston rise up to take care of one another and respond in remarkable ways. Local churches from across the region stepped up to love their neighbors in many tangible ways.
