People still in need of help recovering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey have a chance to meet with service providers between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday at the Crosby Community Center, 409 Hare Road.

Services available include legal assistance, disaster case management, health screenings, basic needs resources, home repair and rebuild, free immunizations for children and Harris County services and assistance.

Anyone seeking assistance should bring a photo ID, proof of Harvey related damage, photos of damage, a utility bill with property owner name, proof of primary residence, proof of income and FEMA letter, insurance documents or letters of damage sustained from the county, city, etc. Shot records are needed for immunizations.

The East Harris County Empowerment Council organizes the Recovery Tour event. While the organization primarily serves the communities of Channelview, Crosby, Galena Park, North Shore and Sheldon, this event is not limited to residents of those areas, but to anyone with Harvey damage.

ShaRhondaa Hill, director of programs and operations, said this is the fifth such event the organization has sponsored.

The East Harris County Empowerment Council has also canvassed more than 2,500 households and found about 800 of those still have needs related to Harvey.
