Georgia Long-Term Hurricane Recovery

Since Hurricane Irma’s high tidal waves and severe winds battered ashore and swept through Georgia in the fall of 2017, The Salvation Army has been restoring hope, giving strength and providing healing. At the height of Hurricane Irma, The Salvation Army served 57,800 meals, 81,000 snacks, and 47,800 drinks. They also provided emotional and spiritual care for 11,800 individuals, distributed 1,900 food boxes, 900 clean-up kits, and $425,000 in gift cards.

However, those in Georgia impacted by hurricanes Irma and Maria have months and even years of recovery ahead. The Salvation Army is helping these Georgians get back on their feet by identifying their needs, developing long-term recovery plans, connecting them with resources that can help and supporting them as they work toward their goals.
