Through the Habitat Hammers Back initiative, the global housing nonprofit is assisting families in Texas and has begun assessing damages in Florida and the Caribbean.
“We’ve seen how recent hurricanes have devastated whole communities — flooding and destroying homes,” the brothers said. “Join Habitat for Humanity as we repair and rebuild. You can help someone desperately in need of a place to call home. We will rebuild, but only with your help.”
The Scott brothers are urging people to donate to the recovery at www.habitat.org/hurricanes.
On this National Day of Service, Habitat for Humanity is working alongside homeowners in Texas as part of its response to Hurricane Harvey. As Irma’s storm clouds clear, local Habitat offices are beginning to assess damage in Florida and the Caribbean.
In addition to long-term housing repair and construction, Habitat’s response includes organizing volunteers and resources to help with the cleanup of homes damaged by wind and flood waters. Construction plans will be determined after evaluations and will depend on the level of support received from donors, volunteers, corporate partners and other community organizations.
