Hurricane Harvey left a devastating impact the families of southeast Texas.

With the effects anticipated to last years, we need to lean on each other for support and help. We at Families Empowered know how hard this will be for the thousands of Houston families we serve.

If you need help finding a school for your children, please contact us at info@familiesempowered.org or (713) 589-8767.
