APA’s Response to Natural Disasters and How You Can Help

The APA Foundation has created a fund to provide desperately needed services to those impacted by major disasters. To contribute, please visit the Foundation’s Disaster Relief page

If you're looking for a local charity to support in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, you may want to consider Houston Food Bank or Food Bank of Corpus Christi. These organizations are in the most-affected areas and are providing support to individuals. For a list of other reputable charities, please visit Charity Navigator.

The Texas Office of the Governor temporarily suspended all necessary statutes and rules to allow health care providers employed by a hospital and licensed and in good standing in another state to practice in Texas in order to assist with the Tropical Depression Harvey disaster response operations.

If you want to assist, the Red Cross is recruiting for health care volunteers to deploy to Texas and other areas that may be impacted by Irma. 

APA continues to work closely with District Branches directly impacted by a disaster to provide resources and financial assistance. As volunteer opportunities for members become available, we will provide additional information on our website and through the District Branches.
