Hurricane Harvey caused unprecedented and widespread flooding in the Gulf Coast region of Texas, and while the storm has passed, its devastating effects will likely last for years to come. Hardest hit by the storm, of course, were Houston’s most vulnerable populations — particularly low - income women, men, and young people — many of whom rely on Planned Parenthood for affordable health care. During this time of crisis and recovery, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPPGC) has established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which will support the provision of vital reproductive health care for patients impacted by the storm.
While health centers in the region were closed for several days during the storm, PPGC re - opened its health center doors to patients on August 31st and immediately began rescheduling 1,500 missed appointments. PPGC operates six health centers in the greater Houston area and is the third largest safety - net health provider in Harris County,, which is home to more than 1.2 million uninsured people and where,, due to the closures of other damaged clinics in the area, many will turn to Planned Parenthood for care.
Given the increased number of patients PPGC expects to see in the coming weeks and months, the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Program will provide charitable funding fo r patients who were impacted by the storm and are unable to pay for their health care visit.Funds would cover health care needs for these patients, from a routine office visit and birth control to more acute care, if needed, with costs ranging typically from $1100 - $3300 per person. PPGC anticipates providing approximately 3,000 health care visits through this program between September 1st and December 31st, 2017. The Relief Fund Program would also allow PPGC to hire a Program Coordinator who will be out in the field,, providing information about the program along with personal care kits (tampons, condoms, etc.) to those living in temporary housing.
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is deeply grateful for your interest in helping patients a ffected by this devastating storm.
