TrueNorth hearts and minds are with Texas


Our Hearts & Minds are with Texas.

TrueNorth stands at the helm, ready to offer support and assistance to our clients, their loved ones and the many Texas communities impacted by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Nearly a decade ago, TrueNorth similarly experienced a flood of catastrophic proportions, leaving our Cedar Rapids community reeling. When rising river levels threatened our Cedar Rapids again last summer, our team stood resolute - providing once again that when action meets compassion, lives change. 

In efforts to keep Houston residents informed and safe, we've compiled some resources that offer guidance to residents and business owners as they embark on the "recovery" phase of this landmark natural disaster: 

Flood safety precautions

Flood cleanup hazards

Steps to take after a house flood

Restoring your business after a flood

Here is a list of trusted relief projects and organizations actively supporting Houston's Harvey victims: 


Install the FEMA mobile app on your mobile device to receive alerts from the National Weather Service, get safety reminders, locate open shelters and submit disaster relief photos that help first responders. 


You can help Harvey victims by texting HARVEY to 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross (or visit to offer another amount.)

The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, is accepting donations for flood victims.

TrueNorth's committed team of insurance staff is here to help your community recover in the wake of a natural disaster by providing you with support and comprehensive insurance and financial solutions that will assist and protect both your family and business.
