Recovery, Relocation, and Alluvial Awareness in Post-Harvey Houston

Rice University’s Center for Energy & Environmental Research in the Human Sciences (CENHS) and Department of Anthropology is conducting research to find out, via surveys and in-person interviews, how people whose homes were flooded decide to stay or relocate. All of the results from this research will be anonymized, and shared with City of Houston and Harris County officials to help their planning and recovery efforts.

For more information on this project, download this flyer and/or contact Principal Investigator Dominic Boyer or Project Lead Mark Vardy (their email addresses can be found on the flyer).

Free Restoration Services for Flood-Damaged Family Photos

Appointments available 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, December 9 and 10


Preservation Houston is partnering in a special program with Operation Photo Rescue (OPR) to reclaim family photos damaged during Hurricane Harvey.

PH is accepting appointments to submit photos for restoration. Appointments are required and are limited to one per household. Because of the incredible number of photos damaged during Harvey, OPR will accept a maximum of ten (10) photographs per household. There is no charge for this service.

Schedule appointments online for Saturday, December 9, or Sunday, December 10. The event will be held at the Heights Clocktower, 611 West 22nd Street in the Heights.

During the Houston sessions, digital copies will be made of damaged photographs and the original photos will be returned immediately to the owner. The digital images will be sent to volunteer restorers around the United States who will repair, reprint and return the restored photographs at no cost to the people who own them.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of roles. Three-hour shifts are available beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 9, and Sunday, December 10. Volunteer online and indicate the shift(s) you can work and your preferred job. Volunteers must be able to work an entire three-hour shift.

Photographers who would like to volunteer for the program should This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 713-510-3990 during regular business hours.
