Support Following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma

Friends & Family,

Damage from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma pose tremendous challenges that impact many of us directly, creating both short and long term difficulties. Because of the wide scope of these storms, others, while indirectly affected, may also have new support needs. 

And so we write to reiterate our support, and our commitment to your well-being. Whether you are concerned for family members, need to replace materials that were lost, have a new financial situation, are confronting new emotional challenges, or any range of other situations, we are here to help.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office and we will connect you with the appropriate team members and support systems.

All of those impacted by these terrible storms are in our thoughts and prayers.  We will continue to maintain a website with ways you can offer your support at
