Barbara Stokes Spearheads Disaster Relief for Hurricane Harvey through GSH Alabama

Learn more about Barbara Stokes in this patch.com article

Hurricane Harvey landed near Corpus Christi in August last year. It was catastrophic and traumatic with its aftermath costing billions for the government. In fact, the hurricane is tied to another event due to Hurricane Katrina in which they are both the most expensive tropical cyclone to be ever recorded. It resulted to approximately $125 billion in damage.

It was a tough journey for the Americans to move on, which was why the government looked for assistance from construction contractors, including Barbara Stokes’ Green Structure Homes (GSH) of Alabama LLC.

Barbara Stokes has always been one of the frontrunners in providing crucial effort in humanitarian relief. The small business she runs specializes in Disaster Relief Construction, which can genuinely help with the rebuilding process after the calamity.

Hurricane Harvey may be as costly as Hurricane Katrina, but many people criticized the disaster relief for the latter. There were several failures during that time, which is why Barbara and her team are adamant in ensuring no disappointments will turn out this time around.

When Katrina struck, the presence of the military was needed for support. However, it took four days before the Pentagon approved of the assistance. It may not be a long time, but several families were struggling to get away from floodwaters, which meant that lives were lost at that time span.

Hurricane Harvey wrecked about 203,000 homes and destroyed more than 122,700 of those homes completely. It was indeed challenging to bounce back mainly because of the mass homelessness that was a result of the tropical cyclone. This is where GSH came into the picture, a company founded in 2008 with a dedication to providing innovative and helpful disaster relief.

GSH has been known for providing various solutions for both public and private sectors. A professional team will always be ready to offer help so that people can rebuild not only their homes but their lives as well.

    Sometimes relying on government assistance cause disappointment and common people help is valuable at that time.

    Green Structure Homes is a Godsend. Thanks for all the hard work and caring that went into funding a project like this. I hope one day that Green Structure Homes will outreach around the world to countries in poverty and also that have a high risk of natural disasters. Knowing that this is a women own company makes me proud.
