You can make a real, tangible difference in the lives of people affected by Harvey. Please join us and our partner All Hands and Hearts in Houston. We can’t do it without you!
Between April 13th and April 30th, you can come for a day, for a weekend, or for a week or two to help Houston residents’ lives return to normal. The longer you can come the better. Free domestic flights for volunteers who commit to at least two weeks in Texas may be available! In fact, grab a couple of friends or family members – the more helping hands and smiling faces, the more we can accomplish and the more fun we’ll have doing it!
What will volunteering entail? While in Houston, you will work on anything from mucking and gutting homes to rebuilding. Never done this before? Don’t worry. You will receive training in whatever work you'll be performing. If you are from outside Houston, you are responsible for getting yourself to Houston, but once you are there housing will be provided either at All Hands and Hearts’ base camp or at local FBB members’ homes. On work days you will also be provided with three meals, snacks, and water.
If you are interested in volunteering, submit THIS FORM before February 16th to tell us when you are available. Filling out the form does not mean you are committing to come, but we will be making some general scheduling decisions based on the information provided.
See our Houston Deployment FAQ for more information.

As part of the first ever national humanist disaster recovery volunteer program, HDR provides recovering communities with trained humanist volunteers.
Volunteers help the affected communities rebuild after disasters like floods and hurricanes. They do everything from mold remediation to framing to finishing work like drywall. Volunteers are never asked to do anything that is unsafe or outside their personal abilities
We are currently building our national database of volunteers who are ready and willing to help should disaster strike. By registering, you are only stating that you are willing to be contacted should a position open up for a role you may be able to fill.
Please fill out the application below to volunteer with HDR, or to update your existing details in our database. Thank you.
The Humanist Disaster Recovery program is sustained through a partnership between Foundation Beyond Belief and the American Humanist Association (AHA).
We thank AHA for their generous support of our efforts.
