Habitat for Humanity just received a bounty of building materials from Barbara Stokes. Barbara is the CEO of a Huntsville-based contracting company. This contracting company operates a lot differently than most other contracting companies. Green Structure Homes of Alabama is a disaster relief contractor that builds temporary housing for families after a natural disaster.
Green Structure Homes of Alabama have been a part of some amazing projects. They have built bulletproof huts for the Navy, temporary buildings for the Army and even classrooms for Mississippi State. The company also received $26 million from FEMA after hurricane Harvey leveled homes in Texas and Louisiana. Follow Barbara Stokes on Linkedin.com.
Barbara Stokes and her team of engineers at Green Structure Homes of Alabama work tirelessly to come up with structural and engineering solutions for temporary housing. The company has come up with a way to erect temporary housing in a safe, eco-friendly manner that’s also very fast. They work with urgency when they reach a disaster relief area which puts families back into homes as quickly as possible. It’s why the company is so indispensable in the Gulf Coast area.
So Barbara Stokes, CEO of Green Structure Homes of Alabama, knows exactly what Habitat for Humanity needs in order to build homes for needy families in the Huntsville, Alabama, area. She donated $75,000 worth of building supplies last June and has donated another $50,000 worth of supplies this summer.
Habitat for Humanity identifies families that are going through particular hardships and rallies in the community around them. The charitable organization uses volunteer labor to build new houses for these families. Habitat for Humanity then offers the family a no-interest mortgage loan so that they can own their home outright. In the charitable organization only charges the family the cost of building materials.
Habitat for Humanity has announced plans to build nine new homes or the next year using the drywall and hardie fascia board donated by Barbara Stokes. Any leftover material will then be saved for future projects or sold to fund other charitable missions. The donation of building supplies should save Huntsville families on the cost of their new homes. Read more about Barbara Stokes at The Cullman Times.
