Challenge

Families in low-earning and migrant communities are still recovering from the impact of Hurricane Irma. Families who depend on the land for income are struggling so long as the land remains in ruins. While access to safe and affordable child care remains a concern and an obstacle for those who can find work. Children are working through the post-traumatic stress and emotional exhaustion as a result of the hurricane.

Solution

Save the Children has formed strong partnership with local organizations to provide food vouchers to families in need. We opened child-friendly spaces programs to provide structured learning opportunities for children and ensure psychosocial well-being.

Long-Term Impact

Save the Children has committed to remaining in damaged Florida communities and by the side of children and families for the next two years. Your support will help underpin this recovery work. We will continue to work closely with local agencies to meet the needs of families and children as well as their teachers and care providers.
