Displaced By Hurricane Harvey

Last week Texas was hit by Hurricane Harvey which made landfall as a category four hurricane. Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, Houston and so many other places are going to be dealing with so much damage and loss of homes, jobs, businesses, and sadly life for a long time to come.

I was Born and raised in Rockport, TX. Some of my most special and favorite memories happened there. My mom, who has lived in Rockport in the same home for over 40 years has been displaced due to major damage Harvey has caused.  Yesterday she was able to head down to Rockport and see the damage in person. My childhood home, her home she still lives in, is not habitable anymore and so many of her belongings inside have been destroyed.

I am thankful for the safety and well being of my family and friends after Harvey hit. It is going to be a long journey for South Texas, but I know everyone will come together and help rebuild the wonderful communities that reside there.

My heart is in Texas with my family during this time as I am living in Massachusetts right now. Not being able to make it down to Rockport to support my mom and family and help them salvage what is left of their home has been very difficult. I am asking for donations to help her get back on her feet. She is going to need funds to help  rebuild her home, and replace items that have been lost. I will be traveling to Texas in October.

We thank you in advance and are praying for everyone who has been affected by this horrible disaster.
