Calvary House Rebuild
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." Matthew 25:35
In response to God’s call for Calvary to expand its Harvey response we have identified a project we believe God is calling us into. Through Friends of North Richmond (FONR,) we are sponsoring the repairs to a home in North Richmond that was devastated in the storm. This home was not impacted by flooding, but by a tree putting a hole in the roof and saturating the home from above.
Prior to the storm, a family of nine, including six children, was living in 575 square feet of space. Since the storm, this family has been living in a local hotel. Friends of North Richmond didn’t find out about the house until December when one of the children mentioned that all they wanted for Christmas was to get their house fixed. We have committed to Friends of North Richmond, and more importantly, the family that Calvary will rebuild their home.
We need your help! To date, the home has been gutted, leveled and a new roof has been installed, so our part has begun. Right now we are scoping out the work that needs to be done and the materials that will be required. Work days have already started! The vestry has set aside funds for this effort but further funds will be required. We are striving to get the majority of the building materials donated as with the expectation that we will be doing most of the restoration with our own labor. However, there areas still many items that will need to be purchased, such as cabinets, flooring, furniture, appliances, and more…
We will utilize our relationship with St. Lawrence church who have expertise in building Habitat homes to guide and supervise our volunteers during the reconstruction.
Help us get this family back home! Thank you.
