    for this post and all of your efforts!  I live in CT and unfortunately cannot come to Texas to volunteer.  Please tell someone like me another best way I can help you ?

    •  Houston Red Cross (4.00)
      The Houston Red Cross is a great place to donate. You know they are on the front lines. In fact, I think every community is working with them. Check out there website. They have a recent post stating that hundreds of churches are asking for training on how to shelter our new neighbors. They will be doing training tomorrow morning. We really need all the shelters and housing we can get. Any help would be appreciated.

      •  I have 2 bedrooms to spare. (none)
        Sassy Texas,

        I have 2 bedrooms in my home in NW Houston to spare.  I called the Red Cross and let them know, but I have heard nothing back from them.  I would rather go and get a family directly from the Dome than get connected to people through the other websites (like moveon's site).  If you an help or direct me to someone, please do.

        •  please go to (none)
          Thank you for such a fantastic offer. Please go to Hurricane Housing and you can add your name to the list of people offering shelter. We have been giving this address out to hundreds of people and I think they may be contacting people soon. Many people are on their last night in a hotel, and are scared to go to a shelter after having seen stories on TV. I don't blame them.
