As Hurricane Irma makes landfall in the Caribbean and moves toward the United States, Habitat for Humanity – already at work in storm-ravaged southeast Texas – is preparing to expand its hurricane recovery response. Through the Habitat Hammers Back initiative, Habitat for Humanity is working with its local offices in Irma’s projected path to prepare for the storm and is positioning response equipment.
“Our prayers are with those in the path of Hurricane Irma,” said Habitat for Humanity International
CEO Jonathan Reckford. “Just as we are already working to help those hit by Hurricane Harvey, we will be ready to respond to Irma.”
