"We are the Rockport Relief Camp, so our whole goal from the beginning is to give relief from the beginning those so horribly effected by Harvey," said Samantha McCrary, who is the director of the relief camp.

But there are still many more people in need.

The sight of the relief camp, is on her own personal property, where a person can set up camp for free.

And the camp still gives away food and supplies every Thursday and Friday and the first Saturday of every month.

"We still have a lot of people who come out here every week. Usually we have about 300-350 families who come out here to get supplies and I would say probably 1/3 of those are still living in either one room of their house. They don’t have a new roof or they are living in a tent in their yard. We have three families that are living in their garage. 1 garage 3 families," said McCrary.

This also shifts some of the relief camps focus. From food and supplies to rebuilding. McCrary’s got you covered, she  gets lumber and supplies below cost and the labor is volunteer.

"We’ve partnered with a group of Amish, we’ve partnered with church groups and some school groups that will be coming down this summer to do the repairs to these houses. To get the roofs on these houses, to get the moldy drywall out and putt in new drywall," concluded McCrary.
