Summary

Puerto Rico Rises is distributing building material to 500 families affected by Hurricane Maria. Now we are adding those recently impacted by the earthquakes and daily tremors. Buildings weren't strong enough and now they are getting weaker by the day. Thousands are living on the streets as their houses are not safe any longer. We want to provide temporary shelters in this first phase and remove them from sleeping in their cars or under tarps in the streets.

Challenge

Based on the latest information by HUD, more than 300,000 houses were severely damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Maria. According to several news reports, 61% of the more than 1 million requests received by (FEMA) were denied to received any financial help. Now we are facing the damages caused by the constant and daily tremors happening on the Island.

Solution

We provide temporary shelter by building 12 x 12 structures in their own property and taking them for sleeping in their car, tents or on the streets.

Long-Term Impact

By providing a safe haven and secure home for more than 500 families allows that more than 2,000 individuals can focus on finding a new job, return to school, starting their own business and/or taking care of their families and well-being. Several neighborhoods that were totally destroyed will receive an impact on the economy by providing jobs and increasing the population with the rebuild of these houses. This will create stronger and resilient communities willing to work as a team.
