Hurricane Harvey Support

As most people know, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane last night. As an organization based off the Gulf Coast in Mobile, AL, People United to Advance the Dream Inc. understands firsthand what it is like to experience the detrimental effects of catastrophic hurricanes and the effect it has on the community. So, we encourage our fellow Americans to pray for and support those in Texas as they deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and for their hopeful speedy recovery.
