One year after the October 2015 flooding people’s needs are less obvious, but no less serious. In fact, currently there are more than 1,200 families in the Midlands that need help repairing their homes, with the list growing weekly.
In the year since the flooding, United Way and its Midlands Flood Recovery Group partners have repaired 86 homes. In the next year, our goal is to accelerate the recovery process by repairing 250+ homes.
That’s where the United Way of the Midlands’ Restoring Hope project comes in.
Volunteers are an essential component to the Restoring Hope project. By leveraging volunteer labor and donated goods, United Way and its partners can repair a homes for 25% less than a market rate repair.
