Calderon Family Harvey Relief Fund

Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston and areas of the city that have never flooded took in feet of water, including the Calderon's home. Because their home isn't located in a flood zone, they did not carry flood insurance. Omar, Joanna, and their four young boys were forced to evacuate their home because of the swelling of the Addicks Reservoir that The Army Corps of Engineers had no choice but to open the gates to let water drain without flooding downtown. This was the first time in the history of this giant reservoir that it spilled over on the retaining side, inundating Joanna and Omar's neighborhood and destroying the first level of their home. 

Because their home wasn't in a flood zone and they didn't carry flood insurance, they will be paying for the rebuilding of their home from their own pockets - from mold treatment to new drywall. To help reduce the material and financial burden on the family, we, their As One Bible study community in Houston, have created this page to raise funds to support them as they recover and rebuild from the storm. These funds are being sent directly to the Calderons and used to help them rebuild their home.
