Another Home is Finished!

Lagniappe Church, Fuller Center Disaster Rebuilders, and Joining Hands celebrate the completion of Lynda Rich's home. Lynda lost her home and all her belongings in Hurricane Katrina; she lived in a FEMA trialer on her property until summer '08 when she obtained a temporary MEMA cottage. The cottage was removed from her property after it was badly damaged in Hurricane Gustav, and she and her daughter have been living in a camper trailer without water or electricity ever since. Construction on the home began in January 2009, and despite her own physical disability, Lynda has worked tirelessly alongside the volunteers on the construction; after three-and-a-half long years, Lynda is finally home again.
