All Hands and Hearts – Smart Response effectively and efficiently addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters. By listening to local people, and deploying our unique model of engaging volunteers to enable direct impact, we rebuild safe, resilient schools, homes and other community infrastructure.
Through community and volunteer engagement, we aim to help families recover faster after natural disasters using our “smart response” strategy. By rebuilding in a disaster resilient way, we prepare them for future events and, through the process, strengthen both volunteers and communities.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall on Friday 25 August, 2017 as a Category 4 hurricane with wind speeds of 130mph. Making a total of 3 landfalls, Harvey damaged / destroyed roughly 185,000 homes, impacting millions of people.
Our US Response team immediately jumped into action. We have multiple teams in Texas who are mucking and gutting homes, cutting down trees and clearing debris. As we transition from response to recovery, we will be installing drywall and insulation, flooring, carpentry, painting, and the finish work needed to get individuals and families back into their homes.
Texas has a long road ahead, and All Hands Volunteers have committed for the long term to help victims recover and rebuild. To make it easier for volunteers to join us, we provide accommodation and meals. If you are able to volunteer for two weeks or more, we also provide a round-trip flight from within the United States to aid with the costs of travel. No construction experience is required - just a willingness to work hard for a good cause!
