Housing & Shelter

Housing & Shelter

Your donations helped provide short and long-term housing solutions for those who have experienced substantial losses during the hurricanes.

Often the most painful part of recovering from a natural disaster is the length of time it takes to rebuild one’s home. With an estimated 200,000 homes destroyed in Texas, and 90,000 homes destroyed in each Puerto Rico and Florida after the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season, the Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Fund prioritized making grants to organizations like Habitat for Humanity International and Rebuild Texas that are committed in the long-term to rebuilding more resilient homes for families in most need.

Hand in Hand Partner Highlight: Habitat for Humanity

 

Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in approximately 70 countries. Habitat for Humanity’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

 

In the first six months after Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, your support provided over 11,000 disaster services, including shelter kits.

Often in times of disaster, housing costs are likely to rise for newer, more resilient homes, making it even harder for low- and moderate-income families to find decent homes without help from organizations like Habitat for Humanity. Hand in Hand funds will continue to support families in rebuilding their homes in the most affordable, resilient, and sustainable way with help from Habitat for Humanity in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
