It was Move-in day for families whose home were destroyed by Hurricane Harvey.

The Molina family were given the keys to a brand new manufactured home thanks to the Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group.

Their pantry was stocked by the Coastal Bend Food Bank.

The family lived in public housing for more than a year while the recovery group worked on getting them a new home.

The donations were made by the family of Howard E. Butt Jr. and Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The group also presented Irene Garza with the keys to her new home in Tivoli.

So far the Coastal Bend Disaster Recovery Group has rebuilt or replaced six homes that were damaged by Hurricane Harvey.
