Rebuilding for resilience
Bringing Community Matters to New Orleans with Anthony Mackie
Teaming up with a Captain
We've assembled a team to help Gulf Coast Communities build resilience and we're thrilled to have critically acclaimed actor and New Orleans native Anthony Mackie on board. The son of a roofer, Mackie knows the importance of a roof in helping families feel safe and building strong communities. Together with Mackie, GAF is addressing the challenges of disaster recovery and helping residents return home.
Preparing for the next storm
For too long, disaster response has prioritized short term support over long term resilience, leaving families unprepared for future challenges - there is no greater example of this than the sea of blue tarps that cover communities in New Orleans. GAF is committing to help reroof homes and accelerate rebuilding efforts in these communities.
Building a resilient workforce
Through programs like the GAF Roofing Academy, GAF trains community members in essential roofing skills they can use now and in the future and provides resources to our non-profit partners to employ these individuals as they support rebuilding efforts.
