The rain storm that hit the antelope valley on 10-15-15 has effected many .. One family in particular the Cruz's custom built their house in 1985 to fit the living conditions of a disabled Vietnam Vet .. The house flooded less than 2 years ago when a main water pipe busted off Ave m causing severe damages to the home .. The family wasn't prepared to go through this again .
Currently the house hold consist of owners Joe & Peggy Cruz both disable along side their daughter Laurel & 3 children ages 17,16 & 8
The damages are excessive for the household destroying several personal belongs along side clothes shoes toys and things that can never be replaced .. The water has taken out the garage living room and moderate damages to the bedrooms they have no idea how much water is within the walls
The daughter is the only one capable of physically doing any clean up or repairs with the help of her older children ....
The repairs will be excessive ..
Sadly the family's homeowners insurance did not assist them in the previous flood nor will then assist them now .
We created this account to assist them as much as possible ..
The family could really use some prayers .

We are just 2 days shy of a month ago when disaster hit our home .
The process is slow in repairs but we are hopeful that we can get things back together before the holidays however the process is a long road ahead with just the inside repairs .. Then we must focus on the outside and the repairs to prevent this from happening a third time .. With no real answer from the county on the road repairs and then restricting us with limits on what we can do because of property lines the stress builds .. We again thank all of you for your continued prayers and donations in helping repair the Cruz homestead ..

The long road ahead of us .. Things are moving slowly as we attempt to repair and fix our home .. With more rain expected to fall from now til March .. The walls damaged held 20% to 100% moisture from the rain fall 10-15-15 some took much harder hits than others . The carpet was removed from the entire house already and the garage walls have been cut out .. What a mess . We cannot thank you all enough for sharing our story and to all those who have donated here or just held our family in your prayers ..

We are very much in need of plastic containers and bubble wrap ...
And we have so many to thank that have helped donated and simply prayed for us .., no words can explain the gratitude .. Your all amazing
