Recovery Efforts: Immediate and Long Term

Recovery Efforts: Immediate and Long Term

by Kentucky Habitat for Humanity are vital to the growth of our local communities after devastating natural disasters.

Kentucky experienced the worst tornado event in our state’s history during the December 10-11, 2021 tornado outbreak.

Counties affected by this disaster are Barren, Caldwell, Calloway, Christian, Fulton, Graves, Hart, Hickman, Hopkins, Logan, Lyon, Marion, Marshall, Muhlenberg, Ohio, Taylor, and Warren, encompassing the cities of Bowling Green, Cave City, Horse Cave, Munfordville, Park City, and Princeton.

Precious lives have been lost, towns have been decimated, landscapes/streetscapes and landmarks have been demolished, and more than 1,000 families have been displaced from or lost their homes. Kentucky Habitat for Humanity is working to help rebuild communities by moving them from ruin to recovery.

During an emergency, the most basic of needs become both scarce and dire. This includes healthcare, water, shelter, sanitation, food, education, and safety, to name just a few. At Habitat for Humanity, we know that safe, reliable shelter provides the foundation from which all of these things can begin to reemerge during the relief and rebuilding process.

It is also crucial in these emergency situations that various organizations are working together rather than separately. We are proud to be part of an amazing group working to provide solutions that will create the path to stability and rebirth for these communities.

We ask that you consider a donation to support Kentucky Habitat for Humanity’s work in Kentucky’s tornado-ravaged communities. Join with Kentucky Habitat and build homes, communities, and hope.
