Hurricane Harvey Ernst-Family-Fund

Our parents (Ken and Sherry Ernst) were rescued from the 2nd story of their home in Conroe, TX during Hurricane Harvey.  They had just finished a remodeling project a few weeks before Harvey hit.  The flood waters reached almost 9 feet and destroyed everything in its path.

They do have some insurance coverage, but it’s not enough to cover their devastating loss.  Now, the value of their house will drop dramatically given the likelihood of another flood.  We are hoping to raise enough money to help them cover some of their insurance gap and maybe even raise enough to help them walk away from the house and find a new home (on a high hill).

They do not know that we are starting this campaign as they are very proud people and think they have plenty of blessings with their health, each other, family, friends and their faith.  We are hoping to provide them some unexpected relief and maybe a little bit of hope.  Anything you can do to help, no matter how small, is much appreciated.  All money deposited will be sent directly to them by us or with the beneficiary option on GoFundMe once they have connectivity.
