Hurricane Harvey Recovery Resources

We are grateful to the many TLTA members who have contacted us with status updates about how Hurricane Harvey has affected those in the TLTA community. Our hearts continue to break as we hear the many stories of devastation, but we also find our hearts warmed by the sense of community and the many acts of heroism exhibited during this tragedy. To that end, TLTA stands ready to help. After hearing from so many of you, both those who need help and those who wish to give it, we have determined that the best role for TLTA to play is to serve as a central source of information.
