I have been following this story , and as a reporter, i have many questions. I have followed three families from the fire, their trails and journeys through recovery. I am so taken back.
the numbers from the "Benefits for Wildfire Victims" do don't match the number of families helped ... I have sent my research to federal investigators at this time .. BCMA has collected $551,000 in donations since the fires began, "Jackson hoped by the time the deadline rolled around that theyd have close to a million dollars to distribute"... BCMA took in 565 applications, "so they decided to focus on those who were underinsured or who had no insurance."
Of the 1,600 homes damaged or destroyed in the Bastrop wildfires, 100 homes had no insurance, according to the Insurance Council of Texas.
So where and to whom as this money gone?

the families that I have followed, lost their homes, everything in them, cars, pets and way of life.
Family one is a young family with 2 children, they recovered nothing from their home.
Family two a middle aged lady with two children just moved to the area, lost her home, dog, and car,
Family three a elderly man whose trailer home is dust and can't even get his medicines

YET NOT ONE OF THESE FAMILIES IS GETTING AID FROM BCMA, WHY? AND WILL THIS BE INVESTIGATED? THIS AREA HAS A HISTORY OF NON PROFITS STEALING MONEY. And why I write this I think of the hell these three families are going through.

It is my hope that someone will step in and help, SHAME ON BCMA, for playing GOD, shame on them for not helping each family

Isn't BCMA the church alliance that was in charge @ the time. Where some people of the church got high end furniture and other good stuff?
