Cindy's Harvey help

I left my house August 25th because of Hurricane Harvey, and yesterday, Sept 10th was the first day to get back. I prepared myself for the worst during that time. Most pictures showed the water almost to the roof of businesses and homes. I expected damage, but walking in was another story.

Seeing all my things destroyed, broken, molding, or starting to, was unreal. There was nothing that was salvagable. Anything I had stacked or placed up high toppled over, and sat in that water for weeks. This was my first home away from home, and I am beyond heartbroken.


I have set up this  to help me rebuild my life after Hurricane Harvey.   FEMA has helped with what they can and I am still waiting on approval for a government loan for disaster victims, but I hold no hope. 

 I am overwhelmed by the support, love and generosity I have received since Harvey happened.  Thank you to everyone who has reached out, and helped contribute to my long road to recovery!
