We are appoaching the two-year anniversary of the massive outbreak of tornadoes that ripped through the Greater Birmingham community. Since April 27, 2011, Habitat Birmingham has collaborated with agencies and organizations across the region to assist with rebuilding and repairs for those individuals and families who suffered loss in the storms. We are happy to report that we have aided 255 families with their construction needs, helping them along the path to recovery.
Throughout this time, Habitat Birmingham has continued to serve the traditional affordable housing needs of the Greater Birmingham community, through a combination of new construction, home repairs and rehabilitation of foreclosed homes acquired from the community. Through its combined programs, Habitat Birmingham served 268 families in 2012. Volunteers donated 111,000 hours of service helping others achieve their dream of homeownership, have improved living conditions in their own home, or recover from the devastation of April 2011.
Without the financial support of individuals, businesses, foundations and churches we could not have aided these families in the last year. Habitat Birmingham extends a big "thank you" to our supporters for helping provide the necessary funds to help us build... and rebuild... homes, communities and hope in Central Alabama.
