Challenge

A rare Category 5 Hurricane hit the Florida Panhandle on October 10, 2018. The storm displaced 22,000 residents and many more are living in unsafe dwellings, in vehicles or on the street. On May 15, 2019, the Community Recovery Center was created to serve as a one stop disaster assistance center. Since May, over 1,000 storm impacted citizens have visited the center to seek assistance.

Solution

Following Hurricane Michael, we will reduce homelessness in the Florida Panhandle by deploying three basic approaches: 1. Outreach 2. Rental Assistance 3. Targeted housing. All activities conducted through the Community Recovery Center. Research shows that New Orleans was able to reduce homelessness by 90% following Hurricane Katrina by implementing similar strategies.

Long-Term Impact

This project will initialize our efforts to eliminate post disaster homelessness, move 50 of the most vulnerable people to self sufficiency and improve the quality of life for Hurricane Michael survivors. As additional housing options are deployed, we will be able to move people from dangerous living situations into stable permanent housing.
