The Story

Our family could use your help getting back on our feet after the Great Flood. Like our neighbors here in Denham Springs, we never expected something like this to happen to us. Our neighborhood was out of the flood zone and we were not required to carry flood insurance. Thus homeowners will not pay and FEMA is not a guarantee. Having just made the move from CA, bought the house, and we have three cars (that are now flooded), we have maxed out our personal finances and are reaching out to you for help with day-to-day and rebuilding expenses. Thank you for your donation and for your continued prayers! We are confident that the Lord will provide for our family and will make a way for our community to recover from this devastating flood. God Bless!

Hey folks.  Thanks to your support we are well on our way to rebuilding.  We have had some good helpers to lend a hand too...most recently this weekend to hang sheetrock.  New tubs were set last week.  This week is a big week:  hanging sheetrock will be complete by Thursday (hopefully), interior brick will be finished on Thursday as well.  Sheetrock finishing/texturing should be done by the weekend with trim work and cabinet painting starting next week.  Our hope is that by mid October we are painting like nobody's business...with floors right around the corner.  If all goes well, we may be able to be moved back in by Thanksgiving.  None of this would have been possible without you.  Y'all have been truly a blessing to our family.  Thanks so much.  Please check out some progress pics.

Wow unbelievable love and support from everyone.  Words cannot express how thankful we are for all of you.  We are over halfway to our goal in less than two weeks!  We are almost done with demo.  We have a few more bricks and Sheetrock to tear out and will spray sporocide.  After that we wait for a couple of weeks for optimal dry out.  We plan to start hanging new Sheetrock and insulation the second week of September.  If you or someone you know would like to lend a hand please let me know.  Thank you so much
