The Long Term Recovery Committee is currently reforming to respond to Hurricane Harvey. This webpage will be steadily updated as services and additional contacts become available.
For the time being, please contact LibertyTexasLTRC@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
The LCLTRC (501c3 organization) is an umbrella organization comprised of various faith communities, secular agencies, government agencies, and individuals. Member organizations can provide resources and services to the LCLTRC in the event of a disaster. Any interested individual or organization can become a partner within the LCLTRC. Each member or partner maintains its own identity and independence, yet pledges to work cooperatively to improve disaster response and to eliminate unnecessary service duplications.
The LCLTRC began operations after Hurricane Rita in 2005. We help county residents who may have been overlooked by larger federal and state programs. Also we help raise residents' awareness of their options and places they can go for help in the wake of major disasters.
In 2008 Liberty County was hit by Hurricane Ike creating more damage and setting the recovery process back. The LCLTRC has helped coordinate agencies and help those in need with many services. Almost 200 homes have been repaired directly through the LCLTRC and our resources have helped countless others get the help they need. We have also brought over 500 volunteers into the community and coordinated their efforts.
- Strengthen area wide disaster coordination in Liberty County by sharing information; simplifying resident access to service, coordinating resources and jointly resolving cases which have disaster caused recovery needs.
Coordinate and facilitate more effective disaster response by incorporating the following principles of operation:
- Cooperation - creating a climate for cooperation, sharing, and meeting together
- Coordination - fostering common understanding, providing liaison with public officials
- Communication - publishing and disseminating information
- Collaboration - work together to expand our ability to address the needs of the people affected
- Education - increase individual and public awareness and understanding of disaster recovery and mitigation issues
- Political Activity - encouraging effective disaster relief legislation and policy
