Help us help those affected by hurricane damage

Local Habitat organizations in areas hit by hurricanes work to help families address long-term shelter and housing needs through the phases of recovery and reconstruction, long after emergency responders have moved on. Our hurricane recovery strategy follows our broader Pathways to Permanence strategy, which focuses on accelerating recovery and reducing disaster risk.
