After City of Houston employees returned to work on September 5, 2017, many expressed an interest in supporting their fellow employees who lost their personal possessions, homes and cars to the storm. In response, the Houston Health Foundation, which has a long standing relationship with City, offered to establish a dedicated City of Houston (COH) Employee Assistance fund to make it easy for COH employees to contribute to their coworkers who have suffered a loss.
City of Houston Employees were among the first to respond to the devastation and humanitarian crisis Hurricane Harvey left in its wake. Yet we know that many City employees themselves suffered personal losses as a result of the flooding. Your contributions to this fund will be restricted solely for support of COH employees.
