In the end of October 2017, Barbara Stokes, CEO of Green Structure Homes (or GSH), and Scott Stokes, COO, announced the creation of new jobs in six states. The creation of these jobs will support the $28.5M FEMA contract that GSH was recently awarded.
The money from this contract is of great assistance to GSH’s disaster relief work and allows the company to provide safe, efficient, modular housing in, most recently, areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. Stokes understands that, as she explains it, “After a disaster, nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of families residing in our homes.” The modular housing designed by GSH is efficient, offer safety features, and an active fire-suppression system. When asked about the recent FEMA contract, Stokes said, “GSH is proud to support FEMA’s mission to provide relief to all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We are committed to providing the very best in value and quality to our customers.” Read more about Barbara Stokes at crunchbase.com.
GSH was founding in 2008 by Barbara Stokes and Scott Stokes. It is worth noting that GSH was awarded multiple FEMA contracts in 2016 as well, and their commitment to helping disaster victims secure safe housing is strong. Barbara Stokes graduated from Mercer University in Macon, GA, in 2001, having studied Biomedical Engineering and Physics. Barbara also studied in several other technical fields while at Mercer, which all gave her knowledge and experience that she brings to GSH.
Barbara has formerly worked at the Pisces Corporation and Boeing, both of which gave her great experience in government contracting.
Stokes understands the impact that the creation of these new jobs will have. She has said that the work of GSH and their new employees “will support local business and accelerate direct and indirect job growth in the surrounding areas.”
In addition to being a vital asset in disaster relief, Stokes is also an active volunteer in the Huntsville, AL community and is a mother of three.
