Wendy W.
Home Rescue

Wendy is a veteran currently living in Killeen, TX. She is medically retired from the Army and in need of some desperate help!

During Winter Storm Uri in 2020, Wendy's pipes exploded beneath her floor in several places, and after battling with insurance companies for years, the problems still have not been fixed.

During this time period, the leaks have caused so much damage to her home, Wendy had to move her daughter across the street to a neighbors. Wendy on the other hand,  sleeps most nights on a mattress on the floor of a back room addition which could come down at any time. She has been working constantly to support her family and friends while tirelessly trying to get her house cleaned out, hoping she may one day be able to move her daughter back in.

While no one has occupied the interior of the house for almost a year, neighborhood cats and animals have taken refuge inside, crawling inside through all the holes scattered throughout the floor from failed maintenance attempts by plumbers. The house is covered floor to ceiling in animal urine and feces, making it completely unlivable.

It is not safe for anyone to be inside this house.

But no challenge is too extreme for Surplus Americans!

Please check out her story, join us and our partners in our journey, and help us in our mission to bring Wendy and her daughter back into a safe home!
