When disaster strikes, you want someone like Barbara Stokes, CEO of Green Structure Homes Delivered since 2011, on your side. While Stokes may have majored in Biomedical Engineering and Physics from Mercer in 2001, her studies in Technical Communication, Thermodynamics, Structures and Properties of Materials, and Manufacturing and Management may have impacted her career the most.

Based out of Alabama, GSH not only focuses on providing housing and buildings during disasters, they offer experience in the overall planning, development, and construction of modular structures (both residential and commercial) in the United States and the rest of North America. Barbara Stokes and GSH are currently working with FEMA to help rebuild after Hurricane Harvey. “GSH is proud to support FEMA’s mission to provide relief to all those affected,” states Stokes, “GSH is excited to invest in each of these eight communities.” This contract has also brought several jobs (both directly and indirectly) to the disaster stricken area and beyond with manufacturing taking place in Texas as well as GSH’s home state of Alabama, Louisiana, Minnesota, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Barbara’s experience in disaster relief is prefaced with her extensive knowledge of large contractual work at corporations such as Pisces (a company involved in electronics research and development contracts) and Boeing. Barbara Stokes is using her expertise to assure that the communities effected by Hurricane Harvey and her company’s involvement won’t be left without support now and in the future; each of the individually manufactured homes and buildings will contain state-of-the-art safety features to ensure the safety of those displaced for years to come. GSH has gone beyond expectations to involve themselves in the communities they are helping to rebuild beyond just providing jobs. The effects of this project have touched countless lives and will continue to do so for years to come under the concern and steadfast determination of Barbara Stokes and the rest of the team at Green Structure Homes.
