Trending Topic: Supporting Child Health and Well-being in the Wake of Hurricane Harvey

As the flood waters from Tropical Storm Harvey finally start to recede and the damage is fully assessed, an estimated 220 school districts across southeastern Texas and Louisiana remain uninhabitable during what should be the beginning of the academic year.  These closures affect thousands of students and it could be months before they reopen, as districts replenish sodden school supplies, fix broken structures, and clean moldy classrooms. In addition, the emotional and physical toll of the storm can impact the success of students and schools for many years to come. Therefore, it is important to not only support the rebuilding of these communities, but to attend to the emotional needs of the children, their families, and all school staff. Below are a number of resources focused on supporting child health and well-being in the wake of a natural disaster.
