Connective is 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.
As the central point of a growing network, Connective serves families who need help, and makes sure that the resources, tools for recovery, and plans for resilience are there when needed most.
