Help for Houston

PRAY FOR HOUSTON3Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with those in Houston, TX and surrounding areas affected by the catastrophic Hurricane Harvey. Our aid, however, will not stop at our prayers. We are assisting Houston and surrounding areas in the following four (4) ways:

  1. We are financially supporting reputable nonprofit organizations (such as Samaritan's Purse & United Way) that are diligently helping Texas flood victims to rebuild their lives. A total of $5,000 has already been donated to support these organizations. Our immediate goal is to raise $10,000-$15,000 for our Hurricane Harvey Relief effort.
  2. We are supporting World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church (WOOMC) members who have relatives in and around the Houston area by offering shelter for them and fulfilling their immediate needs.
  3. WOOMC is an active partner with American Red Cross and is prepared and committed to open as a disaster relief shelter to house victims who have been displaced due to Hurricane Harvey. Our facility will provide food, cots and blankets, showers, entertainment for children and any other basic needs to assist evacuees.
  4. We are holding a donation drive beginning this Sunday, September 3, 2017. We will solicit WOOMC volunteers to deliver and distribute supplies and resources directly to victims in need in the Houston and surrounding areas.
