Rebuilding 25 flooded homes in Duplin County, NC

TODAY THERE IS HOPE!!  It has been a year since Hurricane Florence came and flooded Eastern North Carolina.  In Duplin County, slowly we can see progress of people returning to their homes.  There are still homes that have not been cleaned out since the floods and there are still a lot of families that remain displaced.  However, everywhere there is progress.  Our communities are resilient, strong and working together to make forward movement with getting everyone home.  Some homes are being raised above the flood level on pilings.  Mobile homes that were destroyed are being demolished and replaced.  Yes, some people have moved and won’t be coming back but those that are staying are determined.

Our Disaster Recovery Group has helped with furniture, appliances, HVAC, roofing, sheet rock and insulation, doors, clothing and household items.  We held an EXPO providing information about physical and emotional help that is available for our survivors.  We have plans to hold more training with information on being prepared for hurricanes, how to complete insurance claims, how to understand letters from FEMA and insurance companies and what receipts must be kept for records.

We still have need of more appliances, more furniture and more building materials.  We need more volunteers to help do the work.  We need prayers and encouragement.  We need people to invest in our communities by building rental properties, affordable housing and providing job opportunities.

Yes, we are making progress, but we are still several YEARS from complete recovery.  Every day we hear success stories and every day we hear of needs.  The difference between Duplin County one year ago and Duplin County today is - TODAY THERE IS HOPE!
