Category 4 Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in September 2017, and over 75,000 residents are still living in damaged or destroyed homes, without the resources to fund repairs or reconstructions. In order to address Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and shelter needs, RMF has enacted a series of construction projects and partnered with FEMA on other building projects. These benefit primarily ill, elderly, or disabled homeowners living in the most hurricane-affected areas of the island. Projects include the rebuilding of roofs, installation of water tanks/jet pumps, the reconstruction of entire homes, and more.
- Conduct major repairs on or reconstructions of badly damaged homes
- Conduct minor repairs on moderately damaged homes
- Install necessary equipment, such as water tanks or electrical equipment
- Improve the quality of life and wellbeing of homeowners
- Prepare homes for subsequent storms and disasters
