Can You Help?

TEDRD has now worked on 175 homes in Galveston and La Porte, TX. 50 homeowners have received partial or total repairs.

With the exit of other rebuild organizations from Galveston, TEDRD will be the last full service rebuild organization left in Galveston in 2011. We want to make sure we are able to help as many homeowners before we are finished.

Can you donate today?

These homeowners are people like Mr. Keyes, an 83-year-old WWII veteran who takes care of his 59-year-old daughter who has brain damage.

Or Mr. Rodgers, who lost his leg to infection after the storm in addition to losing his wife to alzheimer's disease. He now builds cabinets for our projects.

Or Ms. Marsha, who helped others return home after the storm while her own house was in disrepair.

Can you help people like them?

Our homeowners are nurses, teachers, tradesmen, retirees, veterans, librarians, and writers. Many of them lost everything in the storm.

They are people that keep this community moving. They are mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters. And although most of them are reluctant to ask for help, we want to be there to give them some peace.

Can you donate for the displaced Galvestonians?

Please donate today or plan a volunteer trip in November or December. We'd love to have your help!

Peace be with you,


Luke Blount
Volunteer Coordinator
