A Refugio family has a new home nearly a year after Hurricane Harvey destroyed their old one.

Adelia Resendez was presented with the keys to her rebuilt home today.  It’s been a long, hard road this past year.  She originally applied for FEMA Aid but FEMA denied her claim.  Then the Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group stepped in.  With the help of other agencies, they rebuilt Adelia’s home.

“Well, I wanna tell you the truth, I started to cry.  I didn’t know what I was going to go when I saw all this, my house gone but God is good he saw that I got something back,”  said Adelia.

The Coastal Bend Food Bank donated food for her refrigerator and pantry and she also received household items from the Salvation Army.
