In the spirit of being open, we’ve created the space below to share key data points from our organization, ranging from financial support and impact to membership growth and operational metrics. These data points help us make deliberate investments, draft operational planning objectives, and ensure we deliver impact to communities affected by disasters.
Our hope is this data proves applicable and insightful to our volunteers, donors, fellow non-profit organizations, academics, and anyone else focused on the goal of helping people and communities in need.
Hurricane Harvey overwhelmed the Gulf Coast with tremendous wind and flood damage, leaving hundreds of thousands in need of immediate and long-term relief. Team Rubicon’s initial response to Harvey saw the launch of floodwater rescue crews and thousands of members deployed for flood recovery operations.
After floodwaters receded Team Rubicon launched a Rebuild pilot program to provide long-term recovery to those affected by Harvey, with an initial commitment to rebuild 100 homes by 2020. Team Rubicon’s rebuilding efforts will focus on low to moderate-income families to make the greatest impact possible. Take a look at our initial blog post describing our approach.
