Resilient Oklahoma & Rebuild Moore

by Architecture for Humanity


Between May 18 and June 2, 2013, a series of destructive tornadoes swept through central Oklahoma, killing more than 50 people, injuring hundreds more and damaging or destroying over 10,000 homes. Working with a network of local authorities, building professionals and universities, Architecture for Humanity is engaging with the affected communities in their long-term efforts to rebuild permanently and more resiliently.

Hundreds of homes, several schools and dozens of lives were lost to one of the most disastrous tornadoes in United States history. The suburban community of Moore will need to rebuild. Disaster insurance will not cover all reconstruction and design services needed for a healthy recovery.


Architecture for Humanity works with under served communities post-disaster to rebuild resources that would not otherwise garner appropriate attention or support. These spaces include community centers, youth centers, public sports facilities and centers for the elderly.

Long-Term Impact

Community hubs are safe, resilient public spaces that double as resources for recovering communities.
