Connective Texts

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Connective has launched Connective Texts, a text service connecting residents with helpful and much needed resources in the Greater Houston area. We know that services and resources to help get Houstonians through the pandemic are difficult to find or navigate. Connective Texts can connect you to high quality, FREE resources in your community.

What type of resources do you share?

Resources shared in these texts range from food distributions, to rent payment assistance, utility assistance, legal support, and more. We share information for all types of Houston-area residents, regardless of immigration status.

Who are we?

This service is brought to you by Connective - a disaster recovery and preparedness system for the Texas Gulf Coast Region. We provide coordinated recovery for communities in need, and do so through building human-centered intake and application processes, technology-enabled coordination tools, and streamlined data analysis. Connective organizes and distributes these resources in cooperation with our partners and local communities.

Connective is a Greater Houston area disaster and preparedness nonprofit dedicated to serving our community through technology and human-centered design.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant need in our community, Connective launched its texting program to connect people in need with services that can provide assistance. We do so by sending 1-3 texts per week to individuals who sign up (at no cost) about local services (food banks, childcare, etc.) and assistance. If you would like to receive these texts, please fill out the information below and submit.
