Due to the historic nature of the 2017 disaster season, FEMA and other aid agencies experienced an unprecedented backlog. Nine months after Harvey, low- to middle-income neighborhoods in Jasper and Newton Counties, Texas, find recovery efforts have been slow. Per the US Census Bureau, both counties continue to decrease in population and those living in poverty exceed the state percentage level. Jasper-Newton Long Term Recovery Group serves vulnerable populations. Due to back-to-back, catastrophic, 100-year floods that occurred within 18 months, many lost their jobs, homes, businesses, and precious belongings. Churches were flooded. Some lost loved ones. Some families have not had running water for over two years. They have needed to purchase bottled water for cooking and cleaning. Others feel they were scammed by agencies that said they would help, and some moved from the area because they had lost everything, including hope. The atmosphere is one of despair. Our Case Managers live in the area and know the people who desperately need assistance to live in habitable homes and return to normalcy. We provide oversight, from Case Management to Construction, Volunteers, Donations and Spiritual Soul Care.
