To help mark the progress made in bringing families home to Biloxi, Architecture for Humanity partnered with the Biloxi Relief, Recovery and Revitalization Center, the Salvation Army and a number of volunteer groups working in the area to host a House Tour and Design Fair on August 19, 2006 at the Salvation Army Headquarters in Biloxi.

The fair also launched the start of the Model Home program, a pilot program to provide design services and financial assistance for the construction of a number of new homes for families in East Biloxi whose houses were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Twelve teams of architects from around the country showcased concept housing designs that met the new building codes and elevation requirements for the area at a public event. Participating families were than given the choice of working with one of the twelve teams.
