Help Mom, Post-Harvey

Family and friends help with the rebuild process on our family home. September 2017.

Family and friends help with the rebuild process on our family home. September 2017.

On behalf of our mother, we would like to thank our community for their emotional support.  It is still difficult for us to believe that our mother had to endure escaping our family home via boat and is now rebuilding her life from scratch.

We are grateful that our mom is safe.  The next step is to literally rebuild.  Our mom’s house is by the Barker Reservoir which released sewage water into the neighborhood.  This released water combined with Hurricane Harvey’s rain damaged over 90% of our mom’s house and belongings.  Like most Houstonians, our mom did not have flood insurance and we expect very little from FEMA.

We have been thoughtful about how to request to your desire to help.  We have decided on two things that are needed for our family to rebuild and move on:

Help Us Rebuild Help Us Get Home

We value the love and support of our communities and thank you for your kind words over these difficult days and weeks.

Love,

Pauline and Jennifer Nguyen
