Tornado Recovery, May 2012: A Focus on Harrisburg

Efforts assisting Harrisburg have recently focused on the reconstruction of a senior center. 

The Chicago component of the American Institute of Architects has engaged several of its members in working with the Golden Circle Center to rebuild. The Chicago chapter of Architecture for Humanity has assisted the coordination of these efforts.

The Chicago-based effort assisting Harrisburg is part of a nation-wide Disaster Recovery and Response Program launched jointly by the American Institute of Architects and Architecture for Humanity. The Program is assembling resources through partnerships between locally-based AIA components and AfH chapters to coordinate advocacy, education and training and help architects make effective contributions to communities preparing for, responding to and rebuilding after disaster.

The new partnership/disaster program has enabled open communication between the AIA and Architecture for Humanity for this project, streamlining architect intervention in Harrisburg's recovery. For more information on the Partnership, visit architectsrebuild.org
