When disaster and conflict strike, the CWS Emergency Response Fund supports vulnerable communities in their time of greatest need.

Hurricane Beryl in Texas:

Hurricane Beryl made landfall along the Texas coast during the early morning on Monday, July 8th as a Category 1 hurricane before weakening into a tropical storm as it moved inland. The storm brought heavy rain and high winds to the region that caused power outages for over two million individuals and widespread damage and debris. Flood warnings have been posted along the coast and high waters have caused several road closures in the Houston area.

CWS is is monitoring the situation to support individuals in impacted communities. You can help by donating to the CWS Emergency Response Fund today.

About the CWS Emergency Response Fund

In an instant, families can lose everything. Violent storms, disasters and conflict threaten the livelihoods of more communities than ever before, leaving unprecedented destruction in their wake.

In the days immediately following a catastrophic disaster, CWS provides cleanup buckets, kits and vital supplies to help impacted people begin to clear up what was left behind. In the U.S. and around the world CWS works with trusted local community-based organizations to reach the most vulnerable communities, including immigrants and refugees, to provide the support these families need.

The road to recovery is often long and challenging. That’s why after attention fades, CWS works to ensure that affected communities continue to receive the help they need by providing support to community long-term recovery groups. By standing with CWS, you can remind our neighbors that from response to recovery to long-term recovery, they are never alone.
