Quanta Cares provides confidential, timely, short-term crisis relief for those employees in the Quanta Services family needing assistance with living expenses such as food, clothing, utilities, temporary housing, property repairs and other basic necessities.
Quanta Cares was established in 2017 to help Quanta employees devastated by Hurricane Harvey. Employee donations, matched by Quanta, initially raised $1.3 million. Donations to the organization have continued to grow with nearly $200,000 donated by employees in 2020. Through 2020, the fund has distributed more than $1.2 million to more than 250 employees impacted by tragic and catastrophic events.
Recently, Quanta Cares helped 37 employees whose homes were devastated by Hurricane Laura and the wildfires in California.
In the wake of Hurricane Laura, I evacuated my family, including my two little girls, ages one and two, to Monroe, Louisiana, to ride out the storm with my wife Caitlyn’s parents. When we were able to return home after five days of waiting, we basically came back to nothing. The funds we were gifted through Quanta Cares went to purchase a generator and fuel to keep us going. We lost all the baby’s clothes and supply of baby formula, so we were able to get clothing and food for her. The funds will also go towards new bedroom furniture. We have begun the process of rebuilding our home. Quanta Cares gave me a sense of peace knowing I could provide for my family.

My wife Hailey, my four-year-old son and I evacuated to Austin and stayed in a hotel for a couple of days because of Hurricane Laura. When we returned to our house in Carlyss, Louisiana, we knew we were going to have to start over. Our house was destroyed. There is no way to fully express how grateful me and my family are for Quanta Cares with their support. The program is truly amazing and couldn’t be achieved if it wasn’t for everyone who is involved and donates. I’ve seen first-hand how much Quanta Services and Quanta Cares values and supports those affected by disasters that are a part of the Quanta Services family.
