  • Thousands of DPS personnel are deployed in the storm’s path. Many of these first responders, emergency operations personnel and administrative staff live in the affected area and have been personally impacted by the devastation. They continue working to save lives, not knowing what home, if any, they will have to return to.
  • The Texas DPS Foundation assists DPS families experiencing a hardship as a result of emergencies, tragedies, and catastrophes.  This is one of those times. Resources are currently being deployed to help DPS families who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We need your help to help DPS families.
  • Your donation to the Texas DPS Foundation can help with needs like lodging and transportation expenses, as well as storm clean-up, recovery and beyond. We are working closely with DPS to identify employees in need and how to best help as quickly as possible in this current situation.

    Every dollar counts and will make a difference in the lives of DPS families!
