NACC will work with Congresswoman Lee through the “Help Houston Rebuild” official website to submit the houses that need to be rebuilt online for referral. Houston residents will receive assistance based on emergency needs and lottery. Public regulators will assess losses, licensed professionals will assess walls, floors, and other damaged plumbing, electrical and structural repairs, and volunteers will remove materials from standing water.
“In my congressional district and Houston, I have seen the pain of people destroying houses. The historic and tragic disaster caused by the freezing of the Texas power grid and lack of preparation has caused the loss of life and the displacement of families,”
Houston rapper Travis Scott also took action after the state’s historic winter disaster. His Cactus Jack Foundation launched an emergency food program to provide people with 50,000 hot meals with the help of the City of Houston and the Houston Health Foundation. NACC, the Black Service Chamber of Commerce, and the restaurant owner helped Scott and his foundation identify the people most in need.
Ortega, the pastor of NACC’s Disaster Services Department, said: “It’s an honor to work with Houston native Megan Thee Stallion to rebuild houses with damaged water sources.” “We will do our best to help those most affected. People, especially the elderly and single mothers. We encourage those who have aspirations to support our efforts through voluntary service or donations.”
