It’s been eight years since Superstorm Sandy. We have experienced so much together as an organization and won so many things, including rental assistance programs, a Mortgage forbearance, and supplemental funding. But families are still struggling to get home, and most of our communities are no better prepared for storms and rising seas than we were in 2012. Join us on October 29th at 12:30pm for a virtual event celebrating how far we've come and acknowledging the challenges we continue to face.
Sandy families who are still not home will soon lose the rental assistance they have had to pay for their home away from home while they rebuild. Having a home to shelter in place is more important now that we are living with COVID. But many families will have nowhere to go or no way to pay if they lose their rentals just as they are conquering the final hurdles on their rebuilding projects.
