    Hurricane Harvey Recovery Resources

    Hurricane Harvey left a great deal of destruction that will surely take Houston and surrounding cities many months to rebuild. But rebuild we will! Texans are incredibly resilient and with the help of a strong community, we will overcome this.

    IREM Houston’s #1 goal is to be a resource for our members. For many, the recovery process is a foreign one. To help any in need of guidance during this time, we have compiled a list of sources that may help in meeting a range of needs in the coming days, weeks, and months.
