Offering Relief with Heart

Houston, the most populous city in Texas, has a history of digging deep and aiming for the stars, giving birth to the U.S. oil industry, and launching Apollo 11 to land the first men on the moon, uniting humanity in universal kinship. It’s a fitting home for Tzu Chi’s Southern Region Chapter, which began here in 1991: Our volunteers are fueled by endless reserves of love as they reach far and wide to personally offer relief and charity to those in need.







Disaster Relief with Care

We are at the ready to bring disaster relief where needed. Our first mission launched after Hurricane Andrew in 1992. We brought aid and our love and care after Hurricane Katrina and Rita in 2005; and answered the cry for help of those affected by the devastating Louisiana flood in 2016. We feel the suffering of those in distress as our own, and rush to bring relief.

Assistance for Refugee Families

We assist refugees newly resettled in the Texas communities we serve, helping them adapt to a new way of life, and overcome the cultural and linguistic barriers they face. From financial assistance for rent and utilities initially, to charity aid and ongoing regular home visits, our personal care supports these families as they cope with an onslaught of change.

Support for Immigrant Communities

Immigrant communities often struggle as they grow roots in a new land, their limited language skills and financial resources taking a toll on prospects for success. We always pay particular attention to such vulnerable groups, and especially when disaster strikes and their capacity to survive is threatened. Our aid for these communities inspires those helped to give as well.

Charity with Love

We reach out in our communities to offer a variety of charity programs for the underprivileged, our volunteers serving those in need with love and personal care. We provide school supplies and weekend food-packs for students from low-income families, have regular winter distributions and food bank services for the homeless, offer free medical outreach, and run a preschool.
