2004  – Hurricane Charley Relief

In 2004, our parent company Labor Source LLC decided to start our restoration division knows as One Source CATSTAFF. For years, we had assisted in local restoration projects, such as fires and flooding in the Kansas City area. In 2004, with the request of one of our longest tenured Kansas City customers, we sent about 100 people to Punta Gorda Florida after Hurricane Charley wreaked havoc on the southwestern side of Florida. It was the first time we had sent any crews out of town, and it was the inception of CATSTAFF. Although we were just beginning to embark on this journey, we had the quantity and quality of workers needed to assist projects requiring large numbers of workers.

2005  – Hurricane Katrina Relief & Restoration

Just a year into this new division called CATSTAFF, we started purchasing multi-passenger vans, developing our TEAMS, and before we knew it, Hurricane Katrina hit with the largest force and destruction the US has even seen. It was one of the five deadliest hurricanes and damage was estimated at over $80 billion dollars. CATSTAFF was right in the center of the clean up efforts, providing over 300 workers for the entire region. It was such widespread damage, and we learned about housing, transportation challenges, and even the ability to work with little or no electricity. It was this Hurricane which put us on the map, and we established many new long term business relationships, that we still have to this day. Every different disaster presents a new set of challenges and none more so than Hurricane Katrina. CATSTAFF was starting to expand into more regional offices in the upcoming years.
