More Structures Restored & Families in Safe Homes

CDRS (Comprehensive Disaster Response Services) and the Chocolate Bayou Worship Center have been able to restore many homes damaged by the severe flooding from Hurricane Harvey. Each of these homes have been cleaned out or 'mucked,' removing the contaminated materials by cutting them out from the remaining intact structure. The gutted houses were then sprayed with chemicals to kill mold and other health hazards and coated with bleach. At this point the homes had to be vacated and aired out before the removed material was replaced with fresh drywall and insulation.

One such home was Peter's, or Lucky as his friends call him. Lucky, his wife and son (seen in the attached pictures) lost almost all of their crops in the greenhouse they maintained next to their house in Little Cambodia. Lucky was consumed with worry over how his family would recover from losing his house and livelihood. He expressed his feelings in an interview with local news media even as CDRS and CBWC were assessing the damage to his home (see the attached link to the article).

Luckily for Peter, donors and volunteers like Keith (seen on the left in the first photo) answered our call for help and came from all over the country, working tirelessly to restore the homes of Peter and many others just like him to safe conditions for their families.

Please consider donating or volunteering so we can continue working towards our goal of restoring 100 homes or about 1% of all homes impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
