Between May 18 and June 2, a series of tornadoes touched down in the Oklahoma City metro area, killing more than 50, injuring hundreds, and damaging or destroying over 10,000 homes. Since then, Architecture for Humanity's Reconstruction and Resiliency team has been assisting communities, meeting with rebuilding authorities, and assessing still-emerging needs and long-term priorities for the stricken towns.
Architecture for Humanity has been the leading nonprofit in providing design solutions to post disaster areas on a global scale. These positions present an opportunity to commit to making a positive impact in Oklahoma through the power of design. There is successful growth potential for candidates who are ambitious, entrepreneurial, intrepid and committed.
The Resilient Oklahoma program will address disaster vulnerabilities by providing communities throughout Oklahoma with two design professionals who will help communities in need achieve resilience and disaster preparedness in conjunction with rebuilding efforts.
