On Monday, August 30, NACC opened its doors and provided shelter for more than 100 people who had evacuated before the storm devastated parts of Louisiana.
Many of the guests came directly from Gallery Furniture where they had been staying since first arriving in Houston.
NACC provides hot meals, shower facilities, a change of clothes, and hygiene items.
The shelter is following all health and safety protocols with social distancing and providing face masks and sanitizer for the families and individuals.
Volunteers and NACC staff members will remain ready to assist our Louisiana guests with immediate needs and shelter for the next several days.
The joint effort is in partnership with the National Association of Christian Churches, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, The City of Houston Office of the Mayor, and Red Cross.
