Summary

One April 27th, thousands of people's homes were damaged or destroyed in Alabama. Greater Birmingham Habitat for Humanity is helping families recover following the tornadoes. Volunteers work alongside the homeowners to help rebuild homes, communities and hope. You can help rebuild Birmingham.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

On April 27th, 62 tornadoes ripped across the state of Alabama, leaving destruction across 1202 miles. Over 7,300 structures were destroyed; 15,700 additional structures were damaged statewide. Two EF-4 tornadoes and an EF-3 tornado crossed through the Greater Birmingham area, leaving destruction in their wake in several communities. Habitat Birmingham began disaster recovery on April 28th, home repairs and rebuilds continue for families and individuals who suffered loss in the storms.

How will this project solve this problem?

When disaster struck, Habitat had the ability and responsibility to assist with the housing needs of the community. Donations support repairs to damaged homes and rebuilding of irreparable homes in Central Alabama.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will help 12 families once again have a home to call their own in 2012.
