Support for Sandy Victims

Shortly after Hurricane Sandy hit our area, Interfaith Neighbors established a Sandy Relief Fund for victims and their families. Although many of the families affected would be eligible for reimbursement from thier insurance companies and FEMA, many others were not so lucky, especially low-income families or renters who may not have had insurance. Many hourly workers lost wages as a result of the storm, with businesses closed for up to two weeks or more, and with travel remaining treacherous. Interfaith Neighbors was there in the immediate aftermath, and will continue to be there for many months to come as families slowly rebuild their homes and their lives.

One family came to us in desperate need of assistance. A husband and wife with five children were living in an apartment infested with mold as a result of the storm. They were able to find a new home and Interfaith Neighbors assisted them with the security deposit. The family is now healthy and well, and they are most grateful for the assistance.

We continue to hear stories like this every day, and we will support our communities as we all continue to recover from the storm.

Weathering the Storm

In the last several months, Interfaith Neighbors has seen a great level of need as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Our area has been devastated, and families are falling through the cracks who didn't have insurance or who are ineligible for relief from FEMA. As a result, Interfaith Neighbors established a Sandy Relief fund to support the most vulnerable residents, and to help them back on their feet. Last month, Interfaith Neighbors provided assistance a single mother of two sons. Because of the storm, the mother’s employment stopped for several weeks which caused a financial hardship. The mother’s employment has resumed and the family is most grateful for the assistance. If you would like to help people just like this, please consider making a donation. Thank you!

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Last month, Interfaith Neighbors helped a husband and wife and their 19 month old child. The husband was a veteran who was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and was unable to work. The wife was a stay-at-home mom. After seeking medical treatment, the husband was able to return to the workforce and the wife found a part-time job. Interfaith assisted them with their back rent so the family could avoid eviction and homelessness. If you would like to help families just like this, please consider making a donation to Interfaith Neighbors. On behalf of the families we serve, thank you for your support!
