FOLLOW UP: Rockport mother finds help in Harvey's aftermath

Posted: Updated:

After our report on Friday, a San Antonio couple opened their Fulton vacation home to Leslie Bradley and her family, meaning, they don't have to sleep in their car.

So for now, their housing problem is solved. Not only that, FEMA stepped in to help, reminding us again that communication is key.

FEMA estimates that 80 percent of delays are caused by incomplete or inaccurate applications.

Bradley is grateful for FEMA's help, but regardless of whose mistake it was, it's been a confusing process in a difficult time.

"Nobody is on the same page,” said Bradley. “You go to one FEMA in Port Aransas and they tell you one thing, and you go to one over here and they tell you something different. They just ping-pong you around."

FEMA finally inspected Bradley's trailer on Monday. They tell her she'll receive a check for the trailer, as well as all those nights in motel rooms.

Though it might be easier to take that money and run, Bradley is sticking with the community that stuck with her.

"I love the people here,” said Bradley. “Actually it's because of the people here that I've gotten through this. There's been a lot of help from them."
