“Natasha and her 11 neighbors that I’m working with hold a special place in my heart. These are hard-working families trying to make it. Harvey came in and ravaged this place of dreams. They are trying to bounce back and BakerRipley is helping.” – Mara Busey, BakerRipley Disaster Case Manager

“We just ripped carpet out of a house last week. It had been soaked from Harvey flood waters from over a year ago and you could see and smell the mold in the home the moment we walked through the door.” - Sommer Harrison, BakerRipley Home Restoration Program Director
