Disaster Recovery

The Victoria County United Way and local agencies came together to help people impacted by Hurricane Harvey by providing temporary shelter, rental assistance, materials to repair their homes by volunteers, replace appliances destroyed by the water in their homes, and many other critical basic needs.  That work is ongoing, even 2 years later.

Individuals Seeking Assistance

While the Victoria County United Way helped to start the area's Long Term Recovery Group, that entity is now its own independent nonprofit organization. The Victoria County Long Term Recovery Group can be reached by phone at 361-703-5567 or you can visit in person at 207 North Glass Street in Victoria.  Applications for assistance with home repairs, bills, and replacement furniture and appliances associated with Hurricane Harvey are being accepted.  Contact a VCLTRG Case Manager for assistance with your Unmet Needs
