Challenge

Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina in September 2018, and six months later survivors are still living in hotels or in deplorable situations due to the damage their homes sustained during the storm. LSC and its team of disaster case managers work with vulnerable survivors who are in desperate need of help to secure temporary housing.

Solution

LSC has disaster case managers on the ground in the affected areas working with local partners to help the most vulnerable survivors. Many of these families were still struggling to recover from Hurricane Matthew (which hit eastern North Carolina in 2016) when their homes received even more damage from Hurricane Florence. Donations will be used to provide these families with temporary housing assistance while their homes are being repaired or new housing is being secured.

Long-Term Impact

Donations will help Hurricane Florence survivors move from unsafe living conditions and into temporary housing while more permanent housing solutions are found. This helps improve the health and safety of survivors and lets them know they have not been forgotten.
