Donate Now: Tornado Disaster Recovery

Posted By: Becca Davis News ,

A deadly tornado outbreak produced catastrophic damage and numerous fatalities from the evening of December 10 to the early morning of December 11, 2021. Tornado activity occurred in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana. Nonprofits in the affected areas are seeking financial assistance to aid long-term recovery efforts.

Donations made to the Coalition for Home Repair that are designated for tornado disaster recovery will fund building materials and tools for repairing and rebuilding homes occupied by low-income households whose needs exceed resources provided by FEMA and insurance. Donate now

In September 2021, the Coalition launched a fund to assist nonprofits repairing homes in communities recovering from disasters. We were able to fund 15 disaster recovery projects in 10 states this fall. The home repair projects ranged from flood and tornado relief to ongoing recovery related to five hurricanes. 

While other nonprofits provide funds for the initial disaster clean-up, the Coalition is focused on long-term disaster recovery home repair and rebuilding projects. Communities impacted by disasters can take years to recover, and we are grateful that each individual who receives assistance funded through the Coalition for Home Repair will have a safer place to call home.

We welcome inquiries from individuals and corporations who have questions about donating to the Coalition for Home Repair’s Disaster Recovery Fund. Nonprofits completing home repair and rebuilding projects related to disaster recovery are also encouraged to connect with us.
