The Texas Baptist Men Disaster Relief Team is one of the most highly regarded disaster relief agencies in the world, and with good reason. They have earned this reputation. This organization is on the governor’s speed dial and can mobilize with little notice. Their teams provide assistance to homeowners who have experienced loss due to floods, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other natural disasters.
In the case of flooding, teams help homeowners to do mud-out — a general term that refers to boxing up belongings that can be salvaged, cleaning out debris, and removing damaged sheetrock, insulation, and appliances. The Texas Baptist Men also mobilize feeding units, chainsaw crews, and shower and laundry units. They remain on the scene until the work is done. The only thing they leave behind is hope and a reminder that no one has to face tough times alone.
Kingsland Baptist Church is serving as command central for the Texas Baptist Men’s operation in Katy. If you are a homeowner in need of mud-out assistance, please complete the Property Owner’s Request for Assistance and return it to the missions office at Kingsland or email the form to Mary Whittington. It’s ok to take a pic of the form as long as it is legibly clear.
Once the TBM office receives your form, they will assign it to a TBM representative who will visit your home once the water recedes to assess the damage and guide you through the protocols that must be met before a mud-out crew is assigned. Because of the volume of applications we have received, it may be a few days before you receive a phone call to schedule the assessment. And, one the assessment is complete, there will likely be a wait as we work through the cases in our queue. So, please be patient as we are currently serving thousands.
