I am glad that a place where so many members have found peace and answers in the past will be a place where others find refuge and help after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
The LDS Church's Cypress Stake Center will become a command post for Harvey cleanup efforts after being used as an impromptu shelter and boat rescue operations center earlier this week.
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are working with other nonprofit organizations to provide flood relief to Harvey victims in Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Dallas and surrounding areas.
Mormons in the area are also volunteering to evacuate people and provide temporary shelter. Church leaders have offered the use of church buildings. At least three meetinghouses have been set up to temporarily shelter evacuees.
