West Street Recovery (WSR) is a horizontally organized grassroots mutual aid group, which aims to use efforts toward recovery after the Harvey Hurricane to build community power.

Our driving principle is to work together with community members, not for them. Our work is rooted in an understanding that certain communities were disproportionately impacted by Harvey because they lack access to resources and power, and that the same actors and forces which produced these inequities cannot be expected to adequately support these communities in recovery.

Winter Fundraiser Campaign

As the weather changes, help us support people’s ability to live in their homes!

As it gets colder outside, more families are being denied FEMA hotel vouchers and the holidays are around the corner, West Street Recovery is hustling to get people back in their houses. We are trying to get as many homes in the Lakewood neighborhood as possible the materials they need to build out the spaces they need to comfortable move back into their homes.

Visit our fundraiser letter to read more about how we’re getting monetary donations directly to families most in need of a warm home.
