Crisis Response International is a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax-deductible.

Forecasters are calling Hurricane Harvey “one of the worst flood events in U.S. history.”

Crisis Response International has deployed relief teams and supplies to affected families in Texas.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a CAT 4 hurricane with 130 mph winds and historic amounts of rain, causing flooding of epic proportions. Over 100,000 homes have been damaged, and 30,000 people are displaced.

CRI has deployed all of its resources to the region to assist affected families. Our relief operations entail a mobile kitchen unit, a point of distribution for relief supplies, chaplains to provide spiritual and emotional support, relief teams to assist homeowners with debris removal and cleaning homes.

We are asking volunteers to sign up below for deployment to the region. Our base camp is located in Tomball, TX in partnership with Joan Hunter Ministries. (Volunteer info below)


Volunteer / Responder Deployment Info

We need YOU! However, due to liabilities, continuity of mission and the safety of volunteers and victims; Crisis Response International only deploys volunteers who have completed our responder training. If you want to assist with Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts, you can get trained now on CRI Online Academy. (see below)

Trained responders will be fed and housed on site and will be sent out daily with work crews and chaplain teams. Our base camp is in Tomball, Texas.

Trained volunteers will aid in the following:

  • Operate Mobile Kitchen Unit
  • Food preparation & distribution
  • Crisis Ministry & Disaster Relief Chaplaincy
  • Relief & personal hygiene distribution
  • Cleaning and removing debris from homes
  • Assisting homeowners
  • Point of distribution for relief items

We are asking volunteers to partner in their local communities and churches to allocate resources and be driven down and delivered on-site in Tomball TX. We do have limited aircraft for pickup in certain cities. Contact [email protected] to coordinate.

The registration cost is $50.00 and will help cover your food, housing, admin, and insurance. This helps CRI from using designated disaster relief donations for volunteer expenses. Thanks for understanding.
