Housing America: Mission Accomplished

The 120-acre mixed-use rental community is best described as A.A. – After Andrew. It is the reincarnation of a squalid mobile home park for migrant workers that was trashed by the 1992 hurricane. Of the 400 trailers – two sort of survived – while the demise of the others rendered 154 families instantly homeless. Rather than rebuild more of the same inadequate shelter, the Everglades Community Association, a nonprofit group that providess housing for migrant workers decided to do one better.
