The shelter in Brownsville is still open and is the temporary home of about 20 people.
While some have gone home and others continue to come in, there are a few who have been there since the beginning of the storm.
"It's hard," said Melissa Pollard, who's been at the shelter with her family since Tuesday. "It is hard trying to keep the kids occupied. We're kind of getting cabin fever."
Depsite being worried. those who have been at the shelter for four or five days spend their time smiling, while the kids play with toys and the adults play music and watch T.V.
"It makes you feel good for other people to help you out like that there," said David Lyons. "It makes you feel good inside."
Lyons was the first resident at this shelter after trees fell on his home and truck, and he says he's thankful for the shelter where he even celebrated his 55th birthday this week.
"They made me a birthday cake and came out to say happy birthday to me," said Lyons. "That was surprising."
Pollard's young daughter had a cold, and after one night without electricity, she called local law enforcement.
She didn't know how she could get her children to safety, and that's when they brought her family to the shelter.
Even though they are trying to smile, each resident is worried about what they will face when they return home.
"I think my pipes are busted in my house," said Pollard. "I'm so worried about that. I know they are. I've got a dog at home I'm worried about."
Each resident agrees they are thankful for the kindness of the Red Cross and the community.
"One man brought a thing of cheese and a loaf of bread," said Pollard. "He said it isn't much, but it is. It helps. It really does."
While some residents at the shelter hope to have power at their homes by Sunday, others have been told it could be up to two more weeks.
