Prince Harry And Megan Markle continue their mission to be of service to those in need—with a recent donation to a Texas women's shelter. The Genesis Women’s Shelter & Support in Dallas, Texas suffered extreme damage to its roof after extreme weather hit the state last month. Winter storm Uri swept across most of the US and left 3 million Texans without access to power or water.

The shelter announced last Sunday that the couple had made a donation for the shelter's extensive repairs through their nonprofit Archewell Foundation.

"Last week, we were notified that through the actions of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s nonprofit, Archewell Foundation, Prince Harry and Meghan have made a donation to help us get back on our feet," said Genesis founder and CEO Jan Langbein in a press release. More specifically, the (former) royal couple provided funds to repair Annie's House, a transitional housing facility.

In a conversation with the shelter staff, Prince Harry and Megan Markle both said that “their hearts remain with the community, with the families Genesis serves, and with the volunteers and workers on the ground who selflessly provide care and support to those in need," the organization told House Beautiful via email.

The shelter provides transitional housing and other supportive services for 3,700 women and children experiencing domestic violence each year. With the funds from Archewell Foundation, the shelter will be able to repair its roof and will use the rest of the funding to help with more immediate needs.

"Not only will this gift provide for our critical needs, it shines an international spotlight on violence against women and children, letting survivors know that they are not alone," said Langbein.
