Volunteers helping in our Disaster Relief project
Hurricane Relief Program Highlights as of September 2019:
Program to date we have received 293 referrals
As of today, we have fulfilled 247 requests and helped over 800individuals who suffered loss due to hurricane Florence.
Families range from single member households, primarily elderly ordisabled, to large families with children.
Families are selected by organizations such as Catholic Charities, Lutheran Services, Legal Aid and Endeavors. These organizations perform the case management services andrefer the clients to The Green Chair.
Families qualify based on income level and loss ofbelongings due to Hurricane Florence.
Most of the families served have been in transitional housing over the last few months such as FEMA hotels and trailers and are slowing returning their lives to normalcy.
Referrals areusually fulfilled within 2 weeks of receiving them if the client is ready.
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
