Delta Restoration Services has partnered with All Hands and Hearts (AHAH), an organization whose mission is to help communities recover from natural disasters. AHAH is ranked in the top 10% of national charities, with 96 cents of every $1 going to their programs. As a property restoration company supporting families and companies whose property has been impacted by disaster, our mission and values align strongly with All Hands and Hearts’ mission to efficiently and effectively address the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters.
Most recently, they’ve raised $3.5 million of a $5 million goal to set up a program in the Bahamas to help that community recover from Hurricane Dorian. They’ve already had 5,000 volunteers for this effort since the program began in mid-September, and plan to be in the area for 2 years. AHAH is also helping in the wake of Tropical Storm Imelda in Texas, having set up a base camp in Vidor, where they’re helping with tasks such as mucking and gutting homes and performing mold sanitation.
By listening to local people, and deploying their unique model of engaging volunteers to enable direct impact, All Hands and Hearts rebuilds safe, resilient schools, homes and other community infrastructure. Through volunteer and community engagement, All Hands and Hearts aims to help families recover faster after natural disasters, using their “smart response” strategy. By rebuilding in a disaster-resilient way, AHAH prepares them for future events and, through the process, strengthens both volunteers and communities.
