Recovery Begins

The scenes of devastation, desolation and destruction in the areas of Texas most affected by Hurricane Harvey are heart rending. It is impossible to comprehend the suffering and loss that hundreds of thousands of people are experiencing. We find hope, however, in the images of heroic rescues, towering stacks of donated goods, lines of volunteers at shelters, and stories of people from all walks of life coming together to help.
