As many of us in the Houston area, Texas, US, and indeed, the entire world, feel the economic impact of COVID-19, I want to make you all aware that many resources exist to help those in need. 

If you do not already know, as an F-1 student, you are forbidden from seeking government assistance.  However, this does not mean that you cannot seek and accept community assistance from non-governmental organizations.

I will be updating this list as I find more resources.  If any of you know of resources that should be added to this list, please email me at so I can add them!
