The North Georgia Conference Disaster Response Committee has been coordinating and overseeing the rebuilding of homes damaged by the 2009 floods in Cobb and Douglas Counties since December.
Thirty-five rebuilding teams comprised of over 357 individuals from 9 states have completed 25 houses allowing the homeowners to move back in their homes. However, the need to help other families still displaced from their homes continues. There are at least another 80-100 homes in Cobb and Douglas County and additional homes in DeKalb and Gwinnett Counties that need major repairs.
Rebuilding teams have been scheduled for most of May and June; however, more teams are needed beyond that. Three teams consisting of 10 members are needed per week through October. For the remaining homes to be rebuilt, many more rebuilding teams are needed.
If you are interested in constructing a team that can help rebuild homes for those in need, please call the disaster response office 770.739.9537.
