About the Habitat’s Hurricane Recovery Effort:
Habitat for Humanity has launched Operation Home Delivery, which involve a three-pronged effort:
1. Getting the hardest-hit Habitat affiliates in the affected areas back on their feet and prepared to build houses in their communities.
2. Serving as a catalyst for other organizations, corporations, foundations, governments and institutions to come together to talk about low-income housing on a scale Habitat alone cannot accomplish.
3. Implementing a house-building project. In the initial phases, Habitat affiliates in other parts of the United States will “pre-build” housing components, packages them in a container and ship them to the Gulf Coast to be permanently set up when infrastructure is in place. Regular, long-term rebuilding will expand as time passes and the region redevelops.
