Hurricane Michael Impact is Catastrophic. Here's How You Can Help. October 2018

supporting: survivors.

empowering: community restoration.

Early Wednesday morning, Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Gulf as a historic category 4 hurricane affecting the Florida panhandle, parts of Georgia, and reaching as far north as the Carolinas and Virginia. The effects of the storm have been catastrophic. HOPE partner, CoreLogic, estimates that losses from the hurricane could top $4.5 billion:
•    $1.5 billion to $3 billion of the damages are linked to residential loss
•    $500 million to $1 billion is attributed to commercial loss
•    Roughly 500,000 policyholders will be impacted
•    At least 11 casualties have been attributed to the hurricane

As with previous disasters, most recently hurricanes Maria, Irma, Harvey, and Florence, HOPE Coalition America through HOPE Inside Disaster, is coordinating with our partners, FEMA and American Red Cross, to deploy financial disaster relief and recovery personnel to affected communities to help empower survivors as they rebuild their lives.

You can support these efforts by making a donation to our financial recovery efforts here.
