The story of Homestead is one of resilience—like a Phoenix rising out of the ashes. 25 years ago Hurricane Andrew devastated our city, but the community came back to rebuild stronger than ever. However, when things were finally looking up, a second storm came: the Great Recession. It left staff and residents reeling when property values dropped by more than half. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of staff, leaders, and residents Homestead is now in the midst of its next revitalization—rising once again from the ashes.
