Update on Aftermath of Hurricane Sandy

The need is still great. Here you see JBFCS President Tony Mann and myself at our Coney Island Center. The water flooded in--up to nearly six feet, making the first floor unsafe for occupants.

This community-based Brooklyn site offered day treatment programs for Adults Living with Mental Illness. Clients are currently receiving the services they need at our Kaplan Center, but obviously we need to reopen the site where consumers feel most comfortable. 

Routine and schedule are keys to recovery. The work needed to be done to repair this site is enormous. Your generous contributions to the JBFCS Hurricane Emergency Fund or UJA's Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund will help the cleanup and rebuilding process. Thank you for keeping JBFCS and those we serve in your thoughts.

Also, the American Red Cross is in need of volunteers this weekend, November 10 - 12 from 8 am - 5 pm. Participants are needed to deliver meals, load trucks and hand out comfort kits. If you would like more information or to register online please visit their web site
