Brenda, I think a lot more help was given when donations were made to the actual town, like here in Rockport. Months later, we still have people in tents because their homes were destroyed, etc. They're still hauling out 12,000 cubic yards of debris daily,in Aransas County. They've hauled over 2,000,000 so far. We've come a long way, but still have a ways to go. Some of the insurance companies don't seem to want to pay after years of paying them. They have been a problem here in getting things done. We still have volunteers helping and doing a good job of it. It's a slow process, but it's getting done. When you have a whole block needing roofs, just not enough physical help to get it done. Luckily, our city government has done a lot to keep our spirits up....and we had a nice bit of snow! LOL

@Brenda Parker - I have friends who have received help from organizations who received funds to assist Harvey victims. And it's still going on. I'm not going to give the names of the people I know (approximately 20) who received help from those organizations because this is a public forum. If you know someone who hasn't received help and needs it, then you need to give a list of organizations for them to apply for assistance in their area.

As I write this, rebuilding is happening - it's a slow rebuild due to the thousands of homes that were affected. One of my friends has just finished getting their roof rebuilt thanks to donated Harvey Funds. Their house was mainly gutted thanks to volunteers and finished by people through Harvey Funds. Their next step is to rebuild inside. They are still waiting for electrical and plumbing contractors. They are on the waiting list. They don't expect their house to be totally rebuilt until next summer. And they do not live in Houston.
