Volunteers Rebuild Home for Denham Springs Family Impacted by Flood, Dirty Contractors

November 8, 2018

It was a wonderful homecoming Thursday for a family displaced from their home since the 2016 flood. Teressa Bell and her wheelchair-bound daughter, Donna, have been through a lot these last two years. Now they can finally rest easy knowing they'll soon be moving back into the place they've called home for more than 30 years.

Help finally knocked on their door in the help of charity. Bell was connected with The Fuller Center for Housing, a nonprofit Christian housing ministry and an AmeriCorps that worked on her home for weeks. The crews were at Bell's home for the reveal, along with Barbara Stewart, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency that runs AmeriCorps.
