A big thanks to all our recent fundraisers!
Ty, as she is affectionately referred to, is a United States Army Veteran who has served since age seventeen. She is a mother of five, three daughters, seventeen, twelve and seven, two sons aged ten and eight. Tykessia suffers from lupus. Her family was placed in a hotel aided by FEMA which ended leaving her family displaced once again. Upon learning of the displacement, WE BUILD has relocated them to Tuskegee, Alabama providing a temporary rental. Ty now loves her new city and more so we are forever thankful to We Build and Mr. Bentley Evans and his family.
We are Justin and Ericka Grant, a family of (6) who was displaced by hurricane Michael. We have two boys (fifteen and four) and two girls (ten and twelve).
After literally losing everything and having to sleep outside in a tent for weeks before being housed in FEMA shelter we finally got a month to month apartment rental here in Panama City.
We are excited and humbled that We Build has granted us the opportunity to relocate into the historical City of Tuskegee Alabama.
We are the Thompson family and we have three boys and one girl. On October 10th, 2018 our lives changed forever, due to Hurricane Michael. We prepared snack lunches, three days worth of food and clothing as advised. As we hunkered down in the shelter we could never have imagined the destruction ww would witness. As soon as the storm was over we we made the long walk home. Streets were covered with trees and debris from buildings and blown away homes. We finally made it to our home where we lived and shared memories for the last 6 years, it was in utter ruin. We literally lost everything but needless to say we still had the most important thing. "Our Family!"
This experience has taught us a lot and sometimes it's really hard making the adjustments being removed from your home and having to start all over but we are grateful because we did find a place to rent and we have our family together.
