In October of 2016 Hurricane Matthew became the first Category 5 Hurricane to impact the East Coast of the United States since 2007. Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery provides disaster impacted communities with innovative programs to address the unmet needs of residents. HHDR is currently responding to the 2015 South Carolina Flood and Hurricane Matthew recovery in SC and FL. These two storm events have severely impacted over 80,000 families and households, many of whom have lost their homes.


HHDR provides Disaster Case Management, Mold Remediation, Temporary Housing, and Construction repair services to those impacted by these natural disasters. The vast majority of clients served by HHDR programs are the elderly, disabled, veterans, and single parent households who would not otherwise recover from this type of disaster without our help. We will provide services in all 4 of our program areas and hope to return 4,000 families back to their homes in 2017.

Long-Term Impact

HHDR will assist at least 4,000 families to recover from an unanticipated natural event that has caused them to live in unsafe conditions or has made them homeless. HHDR programs help to restore communities by returning families back to homes that are safe, sanitary, and secure while eliminating unnecessary homelessness, and providing economic stability to communities that have been otherwise devastated.
