Help After Hurricanes
& other Natural Disasters
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, A Mother's Rest began providing financial respite to personally -known extra needs families in Houston by fundraising for their immediate shelter, clothing, food, medication, and transportation needs.
Our disaster program is open to any extra needs families impacted by natural disasters in the future. Families can submit their info ahead of the storm.
97% of your donations online and via check will be made available to these verified families. Unlike GoFundMe, donations via AMR are tax deductible and will be provided directly to the family to meet their needs. We are using Paypal instead of other online platforms because of the exorbitant fees from those services. Funds go directly into AMR's Paypal account and will be distributed to families directly or to hotels, etc to support their temporary housing needs.
Donations through AMR are tax deductible.
If you'd like to donate to a larger general fund for any extra needs families in Texas, you can give through the Easter Seals of Houston HERE.
