A hurricane destroyed farmworker housing. A nonprofit’s rebuilding something better.

Jul 7, 2022
Hurricane Irma damaged or destroyed already dilapidated trailer homes in Immokalee, Florida, in 2017. An effort to build permanent affordable housing is now getting off the ground.
The Immokalee Fair Housing Alliance broke ground on a new affordable housing complex on approximately 10 acres of vacant land in November 2021. IFHA chairman Arol Buntzman, left, is joined by supporters of the project.
