Disaster Recovery Home Repairs Continue

Habitat Birmingham is continuing to serve families impacted by the tornadoes that came through on April 28th, 2014. So far in 2015, we have completed 10 repairs on homes impacted by storms, and we have another 14 still to come. Of the projects that still remain, they range from small repairs to roofs and porches, all the way to full home rebuilds. 

Over the past 3 months, we've had over out-of-town 400 students travel to Birmingham on their spring break to help with housing issues, both disaster and non-disaster related. We are proud to be a part of this community's disaster recovery plan, as well as a member of the Central Alabama Long-Term Recovery Committee.

As we enter the 2015 tornado season, we remind all of the families in the community the importance of continued severe weather awareness and safetyYour support of our efforts to build homes, communities and hope is greatly appreciated!

Habitat Birmingham continues to serve communites damage by the 2011 & 2014 tornadoes. In 2014, we built two homes for families impacted by the storms, and repaired many others. We're also continuing to offer lots for new homes in areas where storms have come through, helping stablizing impacted communities

Many of the volunteers helping us over the next few months will be college students from across the country, traveling to Birmingham for our Collegiate Challenge Program. These students come spend a week service helping others during their school breaks. Habitat Birmingham will have 500 out of town college volunteers participating in Collegiate Challenge this year.

Habitat Birmingham depends on it donors and volunteers to fulfill its mission of building homes, communities and hope. Your contribution today can help us kick off 2015 with a strong start. Happy New Year!

Habitat Birmingham Continues Rebuilding

Habitat Birmingham continues to help rebuild communities affected by the April 2011 tornadoes. We are currently working on a home for a new partner family whose rental property sustained damage in 2011, and it will be completed and dedicated later on this month. We also have lots available for selection among partner families in communities that were heavily affected by the tornadoes, with a goal of helping rebuild and revitalize those communities.

We are also starting to go out and make estimates for families affected by the tornadoes that came through on April 28th, 2014, which is one of the beginning steps in the recovery process. There are dozens of families that will need repairs, and Habitat will again take point position on assessing those needs, facilitating the repairs to the affected homes and helping the families move forward following the disaster. We are proud to be a part of this community's disaster response plan, and member of the Central Alabama Long-Term Recovery Committee.

Your support of our efforts to build homes, communities and hope is greatly appreciated!
