Recovering Communities in Baton Rouge

09.16.16  |   New Orleans, Louisiana

Starting on August 12th, 2016, a disastrous storm flooded thousands of homes and businesses in Louisiana, causing significant crisis in Baton Rouge. In partnership with FEMA’s Shelter at Home program, CORE has been rebuilding homes for people affected by the disaster. The key of the project is to repair homes to make them safe and livable as quickly as possible. This allows people to move back into their homes, and continue living there while more extensive remodeling is done. CORE is tasked with repairing an estimated over three thousand homes, getting families back into their communities as soon as possible.
