Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide disaster impacted communities with innovative programs to address the unmet needs of residents. What started 5 years ago as an organization providing inexpensive mold remediation has evolved into a full-scale disaster relief organization that provides disaster case management, mold remediation, temporary housing, and home repairs to residents in need.
According to Falon Alo, Executive Director of HHDR, “The concert is a celebration of all the dedication and hard work of Hearts & Hands Disaster Recovery in our first 5 years of operation and an incredible opportunity to raise awareness and the much-needed support for the victims of the flood. The funding will go towards remaining repair and rebuild projects, temporary housing, and unmet needs such as household appliances and furniture. One of the largest factors with the event is involving the local community because that is where the devastation has happened. Citizens helping citizens will always play a big role in recovery as all disasters are local. We could think of nothing else for our anniversary than to continue to support our clients to return to a safe, sanitary, and secure environment.”
