St. John,USVI - Long Term Recovery: Home Construct

by St. John Community Foundation Vetted since 2010

Summary

After hurricanes Irma & Maria, our team developed a rebuild program for St. John. The program facilitates construction solutions, focusing maximum impact on the underserved in our community. This includes the senior roofing initiative, adding required structural reinforcements, AND making homes habitable. We are already dedicated to reintroducing thirty displaced seniors safely back into their homes before the impending hurricane season. Our setback now is funding for materials & skilled labor.

Challenge

Many homes were destroyed due to hurricanes Irma & Maria, and not all residents have the ability (physically or financially) to rebuild. Elderly citizens are in need of safe abodes. Other homes are in need of hurricane preparation (i.e. hurricane straps & shutters). We aim to make all of that happen, hopefully with your help.

Solution

This project will put roofs on the homes of the elderly AND finish out their homes to a habitable state. This project will also help strengthen other structures in preparation for next hurricane season.

Long-Term Impact

Structures being built sturdy and strong and therefore withstanding any future storms.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
