SanCap Resilience will host its next community event on Monday, April 8 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel FL, and streamed live via Zoom. The program will be presented in collaboration with SCCF and Community Housing & Resources (CHR). The event is part 5 in a series about “Emerging from Hurricane Ian Stronger and More Resilient” and will center on affordable, efficient, and sustainable building practices.


  • James Evans, CEO, Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF)
  • Jennifer Languell, PhD, President & Founder Trifecta Construction Solutions
  • Nicole McHale, Executive Director, Community Housing and Resources (CHR)


James Evans, CEO of SCCF and Nicole McHale, Executive Director of CHR, will report on how these two prominent nonprofits on Sanibel and Captiva are incorporating resilient and sustainable building practices into their reconstruction efforts, and why those decisions fit with their organizations’ strategic goals and missions.

Jennifer Languell holds a PhD in civil engineering and sustainable development. She is also president and founder of Trifecta Construction Solutions. Languell is a recognized state leader who has championed the integration of “green” building principles and sustainable design within the construction industry for more than 28 years.

“Building a more resilient community is a top priority for SCCF,” Evans said. “There is not only a need for our community to adapt to the impacts of climate change, we must also do our part to mitigate our contributions to the climate crisis. Our hope is that Sanibel and Captiva can be a nationally recognized model for resilience — one home and one business at a time.”

Admission is free, but registration is required. Individuals can register by visiting https://bit.ly/3v6zXzK. Attendees are encouraged to invite their contractor to attend, as well.
