SALT LAKE CITY — Can one person make a difference when thousands are left homeless?

That was a question Ron Batt asked himself after Hurricane Maria pummeled Puerto Rico in the early hours of September 20, 2017.

Shortly after the storm, Ron spent a week there volunteering to pass out supplies to those in need. That week impacted him so deeply that he gave up his life in Utah and, over 2 years later, is still in Puerto Rico volunteering to rebuild homes one by one.

Recovery from this type of devastation can take years, thousands of houses are still waiting for repair. We travel to the Island to see the volunteer efforts of Ron and other non-profit organizations.

Join us inside the homes of several families who have been helped. Hear how they have found hope and healing through the kind acts of others.
