Act Now Houston is a partnership between an emerging Leadership Coalition for Jewish Service and The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston. Inaugural partners of the forming coalition are BBYO, Hillel International, JDC Entwine, Moishe House, OneTable, Repair the World and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. In addition to its mobilization for Act Now Houston, the Coalition will support efforts that build the breadth and effectiveness of the Jewish service movement, especially calling attention to and lowering barriers for young Jews to participate in opportunities to make a difference. We welcome other organizations interested in joining our efforts to identify, support and promote well-programmed Jewish service opportunities with national reach. The Coalition is facilitated by Repair the World. The Coalition also is supported by the William Davidson Foundation, Marcus Foundation, and Jim Joseph Foundation.

  • Ongoing supervised rebuilding efforts, including some construction
  • Removal of debris and damaged items
  • Sanitizing and mold remediation
  • Packaging and preparing food
  • Delivering essentials to the elderly or homebound
  • Helping Houstonians get back in their homes
