Housing organization Rebuilding Together is providing free critical home repairs to eligible homeowners affected by Superstorm Sandy through its affiliates in New York City, Long Island, Bergen County, Jersey City, and Essex County.
As of October 2013, these affiliates have brought together over 3,150 volunteers to complete work on more than 250 projects that assist more than 430 people.
To mark the one year anniversary of Sandy’s landfall, Rebuilding Together released the Rebuilding after Sandy web series to look back on what has been accomplished and to bring attention to what still needs to be done.
Rebuilding Together made this announcement Friday, Oct. 25.
The Rebuilding after Sandy web series is 19 short episodes shot over several months in NY/NJ. Two volunteers, Maria and Melanie, get to know Rebuilding Together over the course of several projects, where they meet homeowners, volunteers, elected officials, veterans, and others.
Rebuilding Together joined with leading national disaster response and recovery organizations such as the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) to represent and address the long-term needs of low-income homeowners and their communities.
Local Rebuilding Together affiliates have partnered with organizations including All Hands Volunteers, Moonachie Little Ferry Relief Fund, local Rotary Chapters, local skilled trade organizations, the United Way Compassion Fund and others.
