People know the name Eight Days of Hope and have heard stories of its work to help people impacted by natural disasters.
But what they may not realize is how far-reaching the Tupelo-based nonprofit’s impact is or the story behind it.
On this week’s episode, Emma Kent and Chris Kieffer look at how Eight Days of Hope grew from one trip to rebuild homes after Hurricane Katrina into the organization it is today. They also talk about the organization’s work rebuilding homes in Houston, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey, and about its future expansion plans.
Guests include Steve Tybor, co-founder and executive director of Eight Days of Hope, and Daily Journal reporter Cristina Carreon. We also talk with Ben Baldwin, who leads a Houston rebuilding organization that is partnering with Eight Days of Hope.
