Why We Are Here:

Hurricane Michael:

On October 10, 2018 Hurricane Michael made landfall as a Category 5 hurricane in Mexico Beach, Florida and created utter devastation along the coast in Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties. It continued an unprecedented path inland along a 100 mile wide path from Florida to the Georgia state line.  Gulf county in particular was impacted by both storm surge, flooding and wind related damage.  Loss of homes, businesses and belongings was catastrophic.  

 

RECOVERY:

Long term recovery from disasters such as Hurricane Michael begin and end within local communities.  The Citizens of Gulf County Recovery Team (CGCRT) is a local community non-profit organization established to pursue resources (money, materials, & muscle) and coordinate with local partners and service providers to fulfill the unmet needs of individuals and families in our community.  

IN PROGRESS:

Even though our community still has a long way to go to reach full recovery,

let's celebrate progress as we go!

     We have partnered with volunteer organizations to replace damaged roofs....

     

     We have tarped & re-tarped roofs, built ramps, fortified structures, helped citizens move and     

     find related resources....

     We have ensured that those households still needing help are connected to disaster case       

     managers who can help find resources....  

 

     We installed a warehouse to store donated materials and household items....

   

     And in the midst of a Pandemic, we continue to look for ways to repair homes and prepare for more

     volunteers in the Fall, Winter, and Spring....

 

                                    Please stay tuned for more to come.....
