Help Rebuild Canyon Gate

This petition had 1,348 supporters

We live in Canyon Gate, Katy, Texas, which is a subdivision of 721 homes that was under mandatory evacuation for 11 days while it was submerged in sewage water with toxic levels of E. coli. Our subdivision abuts the Barker Reservoir and flooded from water forced upstream. The majority of the homeowners in our community did not have flood insurance and every single home incurred tremendous damage. The residents of our community have lost their homes, property contents, clothing and necessities for daily living and most also lost their vehicles. Our homes are now uninhabitable and surrounded by mounds of contaminated trash. FEMA assistance has not been effective for our immediate and long-term requirements and we have repeatedly reached out to our local government and not received answers or help. We are seeking your immediate HELP to rebuild our homes, lives and community.

As a community of neighbors we have banded together to handle the removal of the sewage and mold that has overcome our individual homes. We are sharing tools, supplies and physical manpower helping each other around the clock. Donations of cleaning supplies have been helpful and the hard work of the homeowners in our community has given us great progress. But now that our homes are gutted, we don’t know how we can afford to rebuild our homes. We are not experienced contractors and our personal funds are being utilized to support our families in a second residence. Please visit our neighborhood and talk to us to understand our situation. We know you care and we know you can help us.
