Rebuild Rosharon (Long-term Disaster Recovery)
There is a small farming community in Rosharon, TX which is home to the Cambodian, Laotian, and Latino community. Rosharon is located 20 miles south of Fort Bend Care Center. Hurricane Harvey seriously damaged the area with 3-6 feet of water that surged through homes. Nearly every home in this farming community suffered major water damage. Now one year after Harvey, many people are still sleeping in sheds and tents outside their moldy homes.
Fort Bend Care Center has launched an initiative called "Rebuild Rosharon." There is opportunity to help rebuild or conduct major home repair in Rosharon. Some of the work still needed includes taking measurement, insulation and dry wall work and painting.
Here is a video of our initiative:
Small groups and fellowships are encouraged to sign up to volunteer on Saturdays. If you are interested in volunteering to help Rebuild Rosharon, please let us know by filling in the form on our volunteer page.
