How GHHC Started

Although the flood waters have receded and homes are being rebuilt, the emotional and psychological healing from Hurricane Harvey continues.

In late November 2017, with grant funding provided by the Greater Houston Community Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and The Rotary Club of Houston District 5890, the Greater Houston Healing Collaborative was formed. The Collaborative includes leading Houston-based behavioral health, social service, and compassion focused organizations – the Institute for Spirituality and Health (ISH), the Menninger Clinic, Houston Galveston Institute, the Jung Center, The Center for Mind Body Health, Compassionate Houston and Healing Circles Houston. The Collaborative began organizing a community-wide trauma relief and resilience building program for persons impacted by Hurricane Harvey in the City of Houston and Harris County, Texas. Since this time we have led over 40 groups and over 40 workshops, helping hundreds of people start a path of healing through the Mind-Body skills groups under the leadership of Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington DC.  And we are just beginning!
