We’ve learned that recovery after a disaster is usually measured in years, which has certainly been the case for families in Texas that are STILL waiting to get the help they need. We are grateful that we’ve been able to keep our team in Texas this long, and we are determined to keep going! In October, we were delighted to welcome volunteers back to our program in Coastal Bend. They helped make a remarkable impact over their 12-week term of service, and we were truly sad to say goodbye to them in early December.
Before they left, our volunteer team had the pleasure of helping Ms. Leonor. After three years, Leonor and her family finally have a complete home (pictured below). This is the first home completed by our DM12 group, and Leonor had nothing but good things to say about the team and the quality of work they completed. In addition to the repairs that were made, new LED light bulbs were installed throughout the home, creating a warm and welcoming space.
Since our program in Texas began, our team has completed work at 397 sites, making a positive difference in the lives of 2,181 people. Our team of staff will continue working through our full commitment timeline, which means our program is set to wrap up this April.
Thank you for your past support - it means the world to us!
