Thank you to Jim McIngvale (Mattress Mack) and Gallery Furniture for their partnership in flood recovery to the community of Independence Heights.
Hope Disaster Recovery is a network of churches, businesses, and organizations united in the single vision of serving those in need following a disaster.
No one church, government agency, business, or organization can respond completely to a disaster alone.
Recovery takes the entire community working together to be prepared to respond during and after disaster strikes.
