Collier County had an estimated total of $320M in damages. Which means a lot of hard working families were forced to make some hard decisions. That's why we are still working to help provide assistance to our residents.
We worked with the UAE to secure $2.7M for Collier County. These funds are part of their $10M commitment to the state of Florida to aid in recovery efforts in Florida after Hurricane Irma caused widespread destruction across the state.
Within 1 month of the storm, we had already provided $116,500 in repairs, housing/utilities payments, medical needs, toiletries, childcare, and more for our Monroe County community
We helped 200+ individuals with their homeowners and auto insurance deductibles after Hurricane Irma
In the 9 months after Hurricane Irma devastated the Florida Keys, we provided $189,000 for rent & mortgage assistance, paid 3,655 utility bills, and mucked out/removed debris from over 800 homes.
We are working with the United Arab Emirates & Grace Place for Children and Families to rebuild 30+ homes in Golden Gate, build new recreation soccer fields, playgrounds and a new tech center.
