Hurricane Harvey Relief

Lexus of Clear Lake made a generous $5,000 donation to Devereux's Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. We are extremely grateful and value our 17 year partnership.

 

Hurricane Harvey has been devastating to the residents of Texas both in Houston / League City and Victoria, where Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health has programs.

Following a safe and successful evacuation of more than 200 children and adults served by Devereux Texas - and more than 125 staff who care for them every day - our Victoria clients and staff returned to campus on September 8, while our League City clients and staff have relocated to our Victoria campus. All programs and services are continuing as normal, but damages to our buildings and property are significant.

We are now in the recovery and rebuilding phase, working as quickly as possible to repair damages to both campuses, and returning our clients and staff to League City. One thing is certain - no matter the circumstances, Devereux will continue to provide safe, effective and compassionate care to those we serve, even under the most difficult circumstances.

We need your support now more than ever. Please help our individuals, the amazing staff who support them, and Devereux Texas rebuild their lives and their communities by making a gift today to Devereux. You can choose to support the relief efforts as a whole, or designate your support to our Employee Assistance Fund.

Thank you for your kindness and compassion!
