Other Service Opportunities

Volunteer at the Ballard House


Because there are so many opportunities to help out at our house, we will gladly work with you to tailor volunteer assignments to best match your schedule and preferences. Whether you are coming in as a group, a family, a civic organization or a business, our guests and staff value and appreciate your help.  Below are some suggested activities for your group or for individuals interested in making the Ballard House your place of service.

  • Guest Wranglers:Volunteers are awesome receptionists, first impressionists and quickly learn to greet everyone who enters the front door with a hearty, “Welcome to the Ballard House.” Our Wranglers also answer the phone, check guests in and out as well as become “tour guides.”
  • Hoe Downers–Work in the yard:There are several times during the year when we need extra help to plant flowers, pull weeds and mulch beds. Please bring any work gloves or work tools you might need. We do not have enough supplies for an entire group.
  • Dustin’ Divas Needed:  Our house can always use a little extra TLC to get to those tasks that don’t get completed every day. This role is so valuable in keeping the house clean and welcoming, and helps people have a positive first impression.
  • Host a Pantry Party:We are always in need of items to fill our pantry. Some groups have held “paper parties” to collect tissue, paper towels, paper napkins and toilet paper (we can use 50 rolls a week)! Put the TP Challenge out to your group. What you use in your house we use in ours–we just use more of it. We update our list of supplies needed regularly.
  • Dinner Dudes and Angels:Love to cook and serve? You are welcome to try out your favorite recipes on us. Meals are always appreciated by our guests.
  • Friendly Floaters: Anything and everything that needs done around the Ballard House  this courageous task force rises to the occasion–watering plants, making beds, cleaning out the refrigerator or pantry, filing, making copies—all done with a skip in their step and a smile on their face. Could this be you?


Ongoing Needs for Texas Children’s Hospital

There is an ongoing need for certain items at the hospital. All materials should be appropriate for a general pediatric population. References to illnesses should only be positive. If there are any questions about what items are acceptable, please contact Volunteer Services Main Campus at 832-824-2257. Advance notice is appreciated. View a full list of items, but the following are a few suggestions:

  • New books, magazines, playing cards, puzzles, board games and inexpensive toys for various age groups.
  • Items a hospitalized child may enjoy doing in their room, unsupervised. No toy guns, remote controlled cars/planes, large toy sets etc
  • Care kits including: toothbrush/toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, shampoo/conditioner, soap, disposable razors/shaving cream, comb/hairbrush, and lotion.
  • Coloring books and crayons. Crayons must be non-toxic. Crayola brand is preferred.
  • No religious references for holidays — for example, use bunnies or eggs for Easter. Please deliver holiday items a week before the holiday in order to provide adequate time to share items with our patients.
  • Coloring sheets and tray mats should be 8 1/2 x 11″ bond paper of any color. No markers, buttons, ribbon, glitter on tray mats. Crayons may be used. Lamination is acceptable, but not necessary. The patients prefer something interactive such as a crossword puzzle, dot-to-dot or trivia game. Written messages should be of an up-beat nature such as “hope this brings a smile to your day”. No “get well” or messages with a religious theme. We prefer a large number of these at once (100+).
  • Craft packets that include pre-made craft supplies that patients can work on in their rooms. Examples include activity booklets, door hangers, nametags, or small crafts patients can complete in their rooms unsupervised.
  • Decorated pillowcases to brighten hospital rooms- tie-dye, fabric paint.
  • Homemade blankets and quilts.
  • All items must be new for infection control purposes.

Summary of Service to Date & Plans for This Weekend!

Over the past 10 days, so many of you have put forth tremendous labors to aid our neighbors who were impacted by the flooding from Hurricane Harvey.  Your donations, service, prayers, meals, time, organizational assistance, hugs, tears, and sacrifices have blessed their lives in countless ways!

  • 107 different work crews
  • 1,500 members and friends from the Katy stake
  • 156 homes remediated!

 This past weekend, across Houston there were:

More opportunities to serve this weekend 9/16-17:

We have been asked by the Area Seventy to send out as many work crews as possible again this Saturday and Sunday.  Thousands of additional LDS volunteers will be coming in to help us from across Texas.  Our LDS volunteers from Louisiana and Mississippi are heading to Florida to help with Hurricane Irma clean-up.   Please sign up with your ward leaders to join a crew and invite friends and neighbors to join us!

Requesting Help for Homeowners.  If you become aware of people who still need assistance re-mediating their homes, please have them call 844-965-1386. If you have friends, family, or co-workers for whom you’d like Mormon Helping Hands to personally assist them, please email pmillerkaty@gmail.com with their name/address/phone number/details of the work needed/and your ward name.  Since we aren’t doing any mid-work remediation, please communicate to your friend that our next availability to assist them will be this Saturday/Sunday.

 Thank you for your efforts in this great work!


Service Opportunities for the Weekend 9/8, 9/9 & 9/10

The flood waters have receded and plan that all members of the Church in the Katy area will have completed the mucking and gutting of their homes by the end of the weekend. We will also be placing increased focus on helping with the countless other homes across our community which still need remediation.  To help in this endeavor, teachers from Katy ISD will be joining us, as will up to 1,000 church members from the Austin area.

If you know of anyone in the area that still needs assistance with re-mediating their home, we’d like to assist.  For friends and neighbors for whom you want Mormon Helping Hands to personally do the flood clean up in their home, please send their name, address, phone #, and details of work to be done to pmillerkaty@gmail.com.  Otherwise, you can have them call the following phone number and either our group or another non-LDS group will help them: 800-451-1954.

Please work with your ward leaders to sign up for a work crew.   Also, please bring any gloves, masks and safety goggles you have–or that others can donate–as we want to ensure we have sufficient safety protection for all our volunteers.  Here is the slate of service opportunities for the upcoming weekend:

Friday:   70 teachers from Katy IDS will be joining Mormon Helping Hands–come out and participate with us.  Meet at Beck Jr. High at 10 AM to work until 4 PM.   We do need a few additional crew chiefs–so if you could help lead a team, please let Fred Lewis know (fred.lewis1212@yahoo.com).

Saturday:  meet at the Katy Stake Center at 8 AM (teachers from Katy ISD may again be joining us).

Sunday:   a special sacrament meeting will be held for flood relief volunteers at 8 AM at the new Heritage Bluff bldg.  All other wards will have a 1 hour sacrament mtg at the usual time and location—except:

-Cross Creek and Grand Lakes: combined sacrament meeting at 9:30 AM at the Heritage Bluff bldg.  Sealy: 8 AM at the Sealy bldg.

We have seen firsthand the level of sacrifice and devotion that so many of you have put forth in the past week. We’re so thankful for all you’re doing.  Please ensure you are getting sufficient rest. We do not expect you to participate in each service event–so pace yourself and choose only those that you’re reasonably able to assist with.

We continue to see the Lord’s hand in this work. We see miracles each day.  Doors opening. Hearts softening.  Remarkable relationships forming.   We pray for your continued safety and well being in the days ahead as we carry His love and hope into the hearts of those we serve.

We will now be placing additional focus on assisting them with their spiritual and temporal needs they begin the rebuilding process.

Resources for Dealing with Flooding

There is so much information to sort through as families are recovering from the flooding, we have put in a few more documents in the share folder to access: Hurricane Harvey Recovery

These documents include navigating FEMA, cleaning up personal property after a flood and a response guide to dealing with this crisis.

Please share these documents with those who can benefit the most!

Tips on Surviving after Harvey

These are some valuable tips from the Buskop Law Group

TDEM has asked for help spreading the word about how to track friends and family who are Hurricane Harvey evacuees. The Red Cross has a system, but evacuees must register once safe by going to safeandwell.org and list themselves as “Safe and Well”. If you use Twitter or Facebook, please SHARE this website and encourage those who follow you to also share/retweet to get the word out.



To support disaster recovery efforts, Uber is donating $300,000 of rides, food, and relief to the families and communities affected by Hurricane Harvey, and our teams on the ground are working with local officials to understand where these services can be most helpful.

To support displaced families throughout Texas, Uber is donating free rides to or from shelters (up to $50 each) in multiple cities. No action is required to receive a free ride to or from these locations-the full discount will automatically be applied and reflected in the app when you request uberX.

Uber is donating rides and supplies to those in need:

Disaster Debris from Hurricane Harvey will be collected on an ongoing basis until all material has been collected. Please place your debris at the curb as soon as possible.

Please divide debris into the following categories.

TWO – Making your Insurance/FEMA Claim as Smooth As Possible

1. Register with FEMA (https://www.fema.gov/hurricane-harvey). Get in line now. Don’t wait until the storm passes.
2. File for the Disaster Assistance and Emergency Relief Program (https://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-details/4418), and file your Publication 547 form (https://www.irs.gov/publications/p547/) with the IRS. Both of these programs allow for residents to write off their losses via taxes, and even refile your most recent taxes, thus potentially getting an unexpected refund, something that could go a long way in recovery.
3. Apply for the Disaster Legal Services Program (https://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-details/431). Through this program, the government provides legal services to lower-income individuals. This can help when seeking insurance claims, dealing with contractors and home repairs, etc. A huge benefit.
4. Apply for Rebuild Houston Together (http://www.rebuildinghouston.org/homeowners.htm), a group that helps senior citizens rebuild their homes.
5. See if you belong to a group that is a member of the Tool Bank (http://www.houstontoolbank.org/borrow…/first-time-borrowers/), a group that brings much needed tools to a disaster area. Note you must be a part of one of their member orgs, such as a church or other charity, including neighborhood associations.
6. Apply for assistance with Team Rubicon (https://teamrubiconusa.org/response/capabilities-services/) a group that specializes in helping gut homes damaged by disaster so that trade professionals can come in and get the job done faster and cheaper.
7. Work through the options at DisasterAssitance.gov(https://www.disasterassistance.gov/get-assistance). Links found on this site will streamline some of the other steps, e.g. FEMA application.
8. Another useful resource : http://harrisrecovery.org/

Here is more information to share with people whose homes that have flooded:

  1. Ensure physical safety – everything else can be replaced – you can’t
  2. You are in a marathon now, not a sprint – everything will take much, much longer than you want it to. You will be dealing with the federal government (national flood) and they move at their own pace
  3. Take pictures – lots of pictures. Establish how high the water was inside and outside of your house. You need to prove how deep the water was as part of your flood claim. Use a yardstick or ruler on the outside of your house to establish the high water mark.
  4. File your claim immediately – get in line for adjustors, etc.
  5. Flood insurance will not reimburse you for loss of use, so any hotel or lodging expenses will be out of pocket
  6. Save all receipts – all of them
  7. Order a POD or storage container as they will sell out fast or rent a storage unit
  8. As soon as the water recedes, start mitigating the damage. Shopvac out what water you can, remove the wet carpets, remove the baseboards and start removing wet sheetrock. Cut a line about 2 feet up the wall. The straighter you cut, the easier the rebuild will be. Bag debris/insulation etc and take it outside. Save a square of ruined carpet and ruined carpet pad for the insurance to verify replacement value – if you have multiple carpets, save multiple samples. – Your goal is to get anything wet out of your house so it can begin to dry. Don’t worry about removing glue down hardwoods, let the contractor handle that during the rebuild
  9. Take pictures of any damage you see, wet sheetrock, wet carpet, wet furniture, anything you want to claim – document. For contents, document individual items – each shirt, book, etc needs to be enumerated and documented for the claim – if you say 20 books on your claim, you need a photograph where 20 books can be individually accounted for – be exact and over detailed
  10. We are expecting more rain so don’t put flood debris where it can float away, block a drain and cause more trouble
  11. Be very careful about hiring “the experts” companies will bring in fans, etc. and eat up a lot of your claim check by “drying” your house – once the walls are open, the studs will dry in time. Every dime you spend renting expensive blowers is money you can’t use towards granite countertops or tile upgrades when you rebuild. Fans, your air conditioner a dehumidifier from Home Depot will do the job. You can spray the studs with bleach as they dry out. We saved $10K each claim by doing the work ourselves in our three floods.
  12. Be careful hiring contractors – ask for multiple references, ensure they use sub-contractors they know – they will be busy and be prepared to wait
  13. Plastic storage tubs work better than cardboard boxes for storage of your undamaged stuff
  14. Be nice to the adjustor – he or she will be valuing your loss and establishing the rebuild – every dollar counts, so be a pleasant memory for the adjustor, rather than “that” person
  15. No matter who your insurance company is, all flood claims go through the federal government, all money comes through FEMA, so the time between the adjustor visiting your house and you getting money takes weeks/months – be patient – it is challenging and horrible waiting, but you are dealing with the government and all the other claims that are in flight as well.
  16. Your first estimate will likely be less than you expect, so work with your contractor to file a supplement for things that were missed. Be wary of working with 3rd party arbitrators as they will take a %age of your total claim, not just any extra they get you in the supplement.
  17. Accept help when offered and be specific – if someone asks “what can I do?” tell them something specific – I need candles, contractor bags, sandwiches – be grateful of those that reach out and be honest with what you need.
  18. You will get through this, it is a struggle, but you will get through it. Lean on your faith, your friends and family.


THREE – Tips on Moving and Places with Current Availability

Here is a list of move in ready apartments for all those displaced from their homes. This was updated as of yesterday. If you know anyone in need, please pass this on

Please rent a storage space before you start to move your possessions if you are not moving into an apartment immediately.  If you need moving help, please call us. We are restocking our boxes and supplies daily. Amazing Spaces had storage space available the last time that I checked. Rent a storage space that is larger than you think that you will need. If you do not stack your possessions, you will be able to access quickly as you need them.

Hurricane Relief Update 9/4

17 Homes Completed Today!

What a day it has been! Some of you have been doing relief work in homes for over 4 days straight! Today we had at least 180 women, men and youth cleaning out homes and we thank you for your sacrifice!

Regarding Signing Up for Help

Earlier today we posted fliers to share with others that are in need of service at their home. By calling one of these numbers, they will be added to a database that many organizations are using, including the LDS Church, to plan for the projects and recruit volunteers. If you have a close friend or neighbor you specifically want members of the Katy Texas stake to handle, please have them email Philip Miller directly at: pmillerkaty@gmail.com. That way we can ensure our stake will manage the project. If you have time and would like to help input names into Crisiscleanup.org, please also contact Philip – they could use the help!
