We invite you to join the fight to rebuild our community.
Because of the great need to connect doers to those who are still recovering from the impacts of Hurricane Harvey, United Way of Brazoria County (UWBC) is announcing, in partnership with SBP and the Brazoria County Long-Term Recovery Committee (BCL-TRC), Summer of Action 2018.
Summer of Action 2018 will include multiple residential recovery and rebuilding projects around Brazoria County throughout the summer months.

SBP shrinks time between disaster and recovery through five interventions: Rebuilding efficiently; Sharing our model with other organizations; Preparing home and business owners through resilience training; Advising municipal and state officials; and Advocating for policy changes and improvements to the disaster recovery industry. To achieve our mission, SBP takes a holistic approach to disasters—increasing resilience before, and streamlining recovery after. To learn more about SBP, CLICK HERE.
The Brazoria County Long-Term Recovery Committee fosters efficient, streamlined service delivery to people affected by disaster, while eliminating unnecessary duplication of effort, through cooperation in the four phases of disaster: preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation. We work with families to develop a plan that addresses their unmet recovery needs and restores their lives and property to some sense of normalcy. We are a public/private partnership designed to help people help themselves. To learn more about the Brazoria County Long-Term Recovery Committee, CLICK HERE.
