Disaster Readiness and Recovery

In 1992, Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade was established to rebuild the homes of Miami-Dade residents displaced by Hurricane Andrew. 30 years later, we are still rebuilding for our neighbors in need. Come hell or high water, we have an established presence with strong relationships that positions us to provide our services to uninsured or underinsured low-income families, older adults, veterans, and people with disabilities. Following a disaster, we muck and gut homes that were flooded and tarp roofs that were damaged. We then work long-term to bring displaced low-income community residents back home and help those whose houses suffered damage during the storms. Our average repair cost per property is estimated to be $25,000.

“I inherited my home from my father who worked his whole life to get a taste of the American Dream. As a single mother of 5 with a small social worker salary, I had not been able to keep up with the wear and tear of my home. Hurricane Irma did the rest. Before Rebuilding Together Miami came and replaced my roof we were all living in the living room, the only area of the home that was watertight. I now have a safer environment where to raise my family and I am grateful to you all for that!”
