Rebuilding Key Largo

Essential Question

What does it take to rebuild a community after a catastrophic event?

Project Description

Each year communities all over the country are impacted by natural disasters. The scale and scope of the destruction can be unfathomable. During Hurricane Maria, in September 2017, southern Florida suffered a tremendous amount of damage. Directly following the storm, relief workers helped to get the community on its feet. But, how do they continue to rebuild all that was lost? How do homeowners afford to rebuild their lives from scratch? We will travel to Key Largo and partner with a local organization to help with a house build for a family in need and better understand the struggles faced by everyday people when their lives are disrupted by natural disaster.
