Hurricane Florence Relief Fund

Hurricane Florence Relief Fund

Summary

Hurricane Florence devastated eastern North Carolina counties killing more than 45 people and destroying thousands of homes. While many households qualified for FEMA assistance, many low income families are struggling who did not qualify for any type of assistance. We are working with local cased managed programs, taking referrals for families who are going into housing following extended shelter or hotel stays but that have no monies for beds or furnishings to begin their housing recovery.

Challenge

Following Hurricane Florence, many affordable housing units were rendered inhabitable. Households were completed submersed and contents were completely lost, either swept away in floodwaters or damaged by mud, mold and water. Many low income victims do not have the resources to replace contents. This project provides not only the can opener to open the soup, but the bowl, the spoon and the table for the family to share a meal. We provide a whole household, furnishing a brighter future.

Solution

TGCP provides beds, furnishings and whole households to families who had lost everything from Hurricane Florence flooding. Families who have spent months in shelters, hotels or couch surfing with friends, now find themselves able to get settled into their lives. They have a bed on which to sleep, pots/pans to cook a meal, a table to share that meal and a recovery from the trauma of their total loss.

Long-Term Impact

This project will uplift the most vulnerable populations from this disaster - the poor. Without this assistance, many victims would turn to rent-to-own furniture store or go into credit card debt (if they even had credit), paying thousands of dollars over time for basic furnishings and continuing the cycle of poverty. Having basic furnishings will improve health and well-being by ensuring a better night's sleep, home cooked meals and the peace that comes with home.
