Denham Springs non-profit helps families still recovering from 2016 flood
DENHAM SPRINGS - A new nonprofit group called Lazarus of Denham is helping people still trying to recover from the August 2016 flood.
This weekend contractors volunteered their time and material to help a disabled family repair their home in Denham Springs.
"I'm really excited to see it go up, so we can finally move in and get out of the camper we've been in," Eli Einhorn said.
Einhorn, 16, lives at home with his two parents who are deaf. The family was devastated after their home caught on fire in May of 2016. Then a just a few months later the family was set back even more by the flood.
Since then, the family of four has been living in a camper in their front yard.
"We did come together closer as a family, but it's been kind of hard," Einhorn said.
Barry Temple, who launched Lazarus of Denham, says flood victims throughout the region are still trying to recover.
