Disaster Recovery (BACC-DR)

Baytown Area & Chambers County Disaster Recovery (BACC DR)

BACC-DR is a United Way of Greater Baytown Area & Chambers County program founded in 2017 in response to Hurricane Harvey. It is the long-term recovery group for the greater Baytown area and Chambers County.

Mission: To assist in identifying the unmet needs of those affected by Hurricane Harvey and other future disasters, and to coordinate access to resources that would provide relief. Services will be provided with no preference to individuals' race, color, creed, gender, disability or religious affiliation.

Get Prepared: Now is the time for you and your family to prepare for a disaster. United Way partners with City of Baytown and Chambers County Emergency Management to support those affected by natural disasters. For more information on how you can get your family ready in the face of a storm, visit:

Get Help: In times of disaster and every day, the 2-1-1 Texas/United Way HELPLINE is our community’s go-to resource. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, HELPLINE specialists connect callers with the help they need, from emergency shelter and evacuation information to help with basic needs, like food. During times of disaster, 2-1-1 maintains up-to-date information on shelters and other essential resources.

Give Help: United Way has a crisis fund that is open year-round. If you would like to support disaster recovery, please consider making a gift today! You can give through our secure online donation page and select Crisis Fund.  

Volunteers are asked to register today to be better prepared to respond to tomorrow's disaster.
