HOUSTON – The NAACP is doing its part to help survivors of Harvey's floods.
On Saturday, the organization announced the opening of a disaster support command center to help those in need.
"We have people who have short-term relief, but a lot of people have long-term problems and so there's a gap after the short-term relief has left, people have nowhere to go. They have a lot of questions," NAACP Houston chapter president James Douglas said.
Douglas was joined by Texas State Conference President Gary Bledsoe and other community leaders to announce the opening of the disaster command center.
The agency shared pictures detailing relief already done. But short-term aid gives way to long-term help, and that's what organizers said the command center will help steer people through.
From language barriers to learning how to navigate government red tape, KPRC 2 is told the center will work as an aggregator of sorts.
Chronicling the many avenues of concern folks have post-Harvey as they begin to rebuild their lives.
