TIP OF THE MONTH      
 
Join the HIDRA Network!  
 
Why HIDRA? 
 
Because:
  • We are a local network focused on the Greater Houston community
  • We compliment the work of national faith-based response groups
  • We can respond to smaller, localized disasters
  • We are a trusted partner with governmental and other disaster organizations
  • We are interfaith, representing Houston's diverse faith community
HIDRA is a disaster network specifically for faith communities that seek to be involved in disaster response, but for whom disaster is not a part of their daily mission and work.  Being part of the network provides access to training and workshops focused on faith and disaster, facilitates communication within the Houston community during times of disaster, and is free to you!
