Emergency Housing for PR Evacuees

Puerto Rican evacuees who arrived in Philadelphia after losing everything due to Hurricane Maria are facing continued uncertainty about their continued housing. While emergency housing vouchers for evacuees have been extended until June, several families have fallen through the cracks and are facing homelessness.

The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign is looking to raise $2,000 in order to house some of these families by April 1st. These families, who have already been through a great ordeal, are now confronting shelter services that do not have Spanish language services and housing assistance requirements that cause delays and do not meet the immediate housing needs of their families.
