SAN ANTONIO -

It's been a week since flood waters swept through San Antonio, and on Saturday resident were still working to recover.

However, in those hardest hit communities, dozens of volunteers stepped up to help.

Rhoda Council, who lives in the Espada community, said she and her family are still trying to pick up the pieces after their home was devastated by floodwaters last week.

Although Council said things have been difficult, it has really lifted their spirits knowing their are volunteers who care and want to help."

"I don't think I would be out here if i didn't have to be," said Council. "It's pretty incredible that they're out here."

The Bexar County Volunteer Operations Center made a call for volunteers to assist people whose home were destroyed by last week's flood event.

So far, organizers said the response has been overwhelming.

"They've cut walls, they've sprayed," said Margaret Perez, who had several family member with damaged homes. "We just love the volunteers. We joke that they're going to come to family reunions for us."

Some volunteers have been out at Espada all week, including the Texas Baptist Men Disaster Relief group.

Bill Pyle, who is a volunteer with the group said they have been bringing cleaning supplies and boxes and helping the neighbors clear out their homes in hopes that they can rebuild again.

"Our main focus is try to get out anything that will have mold growing and developing," said Pyle. "We normally try to go to those that are elderly first. Those that have respiratory problems. Those that have nowhere else to go."

Many families on Espada Road said they are still waiting for word from the county if their homes will be condemned.

In the meantime, there is still a need for volunteers to help with the clean up.

If you'd like to help, you can register with the Bexar County Volunteer Operations Center on Sunday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

They will be set up at 10400 Espada Road.
