Home delivered by Coastal Bend Recovery Group

APRIL 12, 2018 [REFUGIO, TX] – Like many families in the South Texas area, the Lerma family was beginning to lose hope after the destruction that was left behind by Hurricane Harvey. That hope was restored when they learned they were receiving a brand new manufactured home from Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group (CBDRG) and their recovery partners. Mr. and Mrs. Ernesto Lerma Jr, an elderly couple living in Refugio, had their home completely destroyed from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The storm left their home severely damaged, especially the family’s roof from which leakage began to affect their electrical system, making their living situation hazardous. Several rooms of furniture and personal belongings were also ruined as a result of the damage. Mr. Lerma expressed his own experience with disaster in the area. “I worked helping people out in disaster areas in this county, but I never once gave it a thought that I would be in need also. I want to thank everyone very much, we really appreciate it.” Through the collaborative efforts of CBDRG, Rio Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church, Refugio County, and the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, the former home was demolished, hauled away for disposal, replaced by a new manufactured home with plumbing and electrical hook-ups. Salvageable contents were packed and stored by spring break volunteers in a shed constructed by Christian Public Services (CPS). CPS also built a wheelchair ramp for easier access in and out of their home. “It’s a blessing to see all the different kinds of people who’ve been working together and all the capabilities they have to make this happen,” said Jennifer Wickham, Bishop's Deputy for Disaster Recovery from the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas. “It’s a blessing to be a part of all this.” In addition to receiving a new home, the Salvation Army was able to donate furniture to the family and gift cards, courtesy of three Henry Scott Middle School students from Dennison, TX, which will help the family purchase new bedding. The Coastal Bend Food Bank (CBFB) and CBDRG have also partnered together to fill the family’s pantry with food staples and cleaning supplies. “The Coastal Bend Food Bank is privileged to partner with the Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group to rebuild homes, feed families, and bring hope to people and families who lost so much to Hurricane Harvey,” shared Bea Hanson, executive director of CBFB. “With a total of 41 counties included in this FEMA-declared disaster, it is incredible to see steps towards recovery closer to home,” said Judge Robert Blaschke, Refugio County Judge and CBDRG board member. “The delivery of this home is special to Refugio and will be one of many on the road to recovery.” more...
