Since Monday, everyone across Texas has been dealing with the fallout from Winter Storm Uri. In the days since, many individuals have been without power and/or water for significant periods of time. See below for a list of resources available to you during this time. Thanks to Fresh Arts, a Houston nonprofit arts organization, for their newsletter, which noted some of these resources and opportunities.

If you have resources to add to this list, please do so in the comments.

Note: please check your local city and town websites and social media feeds for updated information. Many regions in Texas are currently under boil water notices.
