Hurricane Harvey displaced over one million people in Houston. At least 50 children and adults with CF are in need of immediate help. With additional funds we can also help those affected by Hurricane Irma.
The CF Relief Fund is unique in our rapid turnaround time in helping those in need.
Local CF Care Centers identify the needs of families and the CFRF quickly fulfills their requests.
We have helped many families in the past month with rent, food, gas cards that have allowed travel to much needed CF Center clinic appointments and other necessities. But there are still families living in flooded homes who need our help.
One family, who has a young child with CF, lost their jobs because their workplace flooded. They are living in a gutted apartment with mold. The CF Relief Fund needs donations to help move the family into a safe apartment. Other families need mattresses and household essentials because all their belongings were lost in the flood.
My name is Isabella Passamano and I live in Houston. My parents, Beth Sufian and James Passamano have helped thousands of people with CF in the past 22 years. I decided to start the CF Relief Fund to do my part to help people with CF.
100 percent of funds donated will go immediately to meet the needs of individuals with CF. Our staff is all volunteer.
The CF Relief Fund pays vendors directly for the goods and services delivered and does its best to purchase goods and services from local vendors to support the local economy as it rebuilds.
**The CF Relief Fund is a Texas non-profit and is applying for tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. Donors will be notified when tax exempt status is approved so donations can be deducted from taxable income.
