But at the same time, I was also kind of excited that our city had so many people out there trying to help that we were having a problem trying to find places to help," he says. Volunteering is almost like trying to find a really high in demand job at this point. The couple tried again on Thursday. They headed to the Islamic Society of Greater Houston. But again, they were fully stocked with volunteers.

So they went to Lakewood Church. Same story. They returned home and combed through their possessions, finding unopened toiletries and art supplies, among other items they could donate. And they checked their inbox to see a note from a friend, offering yet another opportunity to volunteer: Avenue CDC was looking for people to help reach families throughout their mix-income housing developments.

They needed about an hour of training and some availability over the next few weeks to help explain the best way to apply for FEMA assistance, and help people navigate the convoluted system. No one was knocking down the housing agency's door to volunteer.

At Friday's training session, there were only about a handful of people, and the Harts were happy to be among them. It was a long road to find a place where they felt useful. But all the starting and stopping was worth it, says Shazia. It's also an invitation to seek out needs in other parts of town — in a place where she never normally would have looked. Todd Meyer lost the first floor of his home, three cars and many of his family's possessions this week.

Saturday's football game between the University of Texas and the University of Maryland was the final straw.

The Longhorns return to the field was supposed to be a respite from days of evacuating Meyer's family, staying with his brother-in-law in the Heights and starting the litany of calls to line up his insurance coverage, predict his damages and stay abreast of when he'd get access back to his Cinco Ranch home. Instead, the Longhorns' loss just compounded the misery.

Texas got off to a decent start, but couldn't keep Maryland from marching down the field. But it feels like getting kicked in the side when you're down. After time ran off, Meyer, 51, grabbed another beer from the refrigerator and slumped back into a cushy chair. Jack Matkin was taking a rest, sitting in an easy chair as the senior pastor at First United Methodist Church in Dickinson listened to the work being done around him.

Loud bangs came from sledgehammers smashing into the water-logged drywall of the sanctuary's hallways, classrooms and offices. Steel tools screeched and scraped as they dug into the church's concrete foundation. And tools clinked against ceramics as volunteers chiseled away at the floor tiles in the entry.

The symphony of deconstruction filled the air as people worked together to begin the latest resurrection of a church that has a history of rising from the dead. The church, now located at FM , has served the Dickinson area since Twenty four years after being founded, it was destroyed by the Galveston hurricane of Now, in its third century, the church is starting recovery from the power of Hurricane Harvey, which caused the water from Dickinson Bayou and Clear Creek to spill into the church and flood its hallways and sanctuary.

As the flood waters receded, volunteer workers responded to provide whatever manpower was needed to get the church back on its feet in time for a worship service to be held in a makeshift sanctuary on Sunday. By 11 a. Saturday, as many as 50 volunteers, including church members and people from outside the congregation, joined together to do the work. A chainsaw growled in the sanctuary as church pews contaminated by filthy, brackish water were cut into manageable chunks to be carried away and discarded.

With his voice cracking from emotions, he continued, "What is important are the human beings in our life, the relationships that we have, the opportunity to love God and to love others.

These last few days have ended up showing how our people love each other. Speaking of his congregation, Pastor Matkin said, "We have a history with great storms. But we also have a history of overcoming the wind and the rain and the water and we'll do that again. Laporsha Patt hunched over on her cot in the George R. Brown Convention Center Saturday, her eyes staring into her phone screen.

The words "pending" lit up under the status of her federal assistance applications for her home and car damage.

Patt, her husband, and their three young children had spent six days living in the shelter after Hurricane Harvey filled their subsidized Southside apartment with enough water to submerge them up to their necks. She filled out her FEMA application through her phone about a week ago, or as soon as they made it to the shelter.

Seeing several families able to secure at least hotel vouchers well before her made the situation even more frustrating. How are decisions being made," Patt asked as her 6-year-old burped her one-year-old. When the wife and mother last asked about her application status on Friday at the FEMA resource desk housed in the shelter, she said an agent told her to fax in her lease.

As the sun set on her sixth day making ends meet at the shelter, Patt instinctively hit refresh on the FEMA mobile site.
