Mission: This mission brings relief and hope to people, by helping them in
the process of rebuilding their storm- or flood-damaged homes.
The immediate impact of this work on the tired and anxious people
served is immense; many of them are financially or emotionally

serves the greater community as each neighborhood is improved and
people are encouraged to return home.
