Thanks to the overwhelming public response from the community, Clothed by Faith was able to serve close to 6,000 people with one week's worth of clothing from their remote, Hurricane Harvey response site at CrossPoint Church in Katy. They have closed down operations at CrossPoint, but are not through serving those in need, and are still asking for volunteers at their home location at 802 Dominion Dr., Ste. 100 in Katy (located off of Kingsland Blvd. between Fry Rd. and Westgreen Blvd.) They particularly helping partner organizations like United Way, Career and Recovery, Family Services, Katy ISD and other school districts, Houston Area Urban League and other agencies who have many affected clients. They are also serving individuals who come to us through our on-line system asking for help.
