Flood Recovery

Memorial Day weekend 2016 was historic for Fort Bend County – storms caused the Brazos River to rise 54.8 feet, which is about four feet higher than normal. This historic 100 year flood damaged over 1,400 homes and affected 50,000 residents. Attack Poverty has been instrumental in mobilizing volunteers to serve our neighbors in need. We are committed to supporting those who were affected by the flood through community outreach and providing information and resources that lead to recovery. Both residents and volunteers can use the information below to get connected! Scroll down to find out how to get help or help others.


Do you have questions? Call our office (832-847-4379) or email us (marty@attackpoverty.org).
We would be happy to talk with you!
