With the second anniversary of Hurricane Harvey just months away, Habitat for Humanity Jefferson County, based in Beaumont, TX continues its shelter repair program for those impacted. The program is aimed at getting people back in their homes and out of transitional shelters offered by FEMA and other sources. Nearly halfway through their goal of assisting 200 families, the organization called on Airlink to transport additional disaster corps volunteers to the area to complete assessments and ensure families are assisted by the program.
“It’s been more than 18 months since Hurricane Harvey and the need to recover is as strong as ever, that’s why we’re here assessing repair projects for hurricane survivors, said Erin Goodyear, field operations specialists, Habitat for Humanity International. “Thanks to Airlink for continuing to support Habitat for Humanity’s rebuilding efforts.”
