LIBERTY LAKE, Wash., Feb. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In 2020 an estimated 500,000 homes were destroyed by fire in the U.S., and $49 billion in property damage was caused by floods, hurricanes, and tornados. Responding to a dire need to help communities and families prepare for natural disasters, Rebuild Homes, a Washington-based non-profit corporation, is announcing a first-in-class Disaster Project Management (DPM) system of online tools and resources to assist communities before and after natural disaster strikes.
The mission of Rebuild Homes nonprofit corporation is connecting and empowering people and communities who have been severely impacted due to natural disaster by providing a free technology solution that helps those who are in critical need to rebuild their lives, homes, and communities.
Rebuild Homes is currently working with Malden, WA, to rebuild their town and their residents' homes. "Recovery and rebuilding efforts must be coordinated, organized, and effective," said Pine Creek Recovery Organization Executive Director Scott Hokonson. "I am truly impressed with the efforts and product solution being created by Rebuild Homes. I believe Rebuild Homes nonprofit is absolutely crucial and necessary for effective recovery and rebuilding in any disaster environment."
Recognizing the global scope of need, Nagarro, a worldwide leader in digital engineering and technology solutions, has partnered with Rebuild Homes to create and build out the software platform. Manas Fuloria, Nagarro's CEO, called the project "a most noble mission". Law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is stepping in to provide legal assistance to obtain 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status for Rebuild Homes nonprofit corporation.
The DPM solution is free to all users and will help communities and public/private partnerships create and disseminate emergency evacuation plans, track financial and in-kind donations, and coordinate with non-profits, government agencies, and corporate donors to provide additional emergency relief. It provides a robust online toolset for scheduling rebuilding efforts, managing vendors and subcontractors, assisting caseworkers with families in need, accessing financial assistance, and integrating with other technology solutions.
Rebuild Homes is expected to deploy the DPM system to the western region of the U.S. by the 2021 wildfire season, with future plans for a global rollout.
