Rebuild and Recover.

Adopt A House was founded to help re-build our local communities by bringing valuable information and solutions to Long Island residents affected by Super Storm Sandy. We have become a pivotal force in providing support for area residents. Since then we have expanded our mission to help families who have been affected by unfortunate situations.

The mission of Adopt a House is to aid and support recovery for Long Island’s South Shore communities by preparing and administering a comprehensive disaster support and long term recovery program to individuals, families and the community as well as contribute assistance to individuals in unfortunate emergency circumstances to improve the quality of life for all residents.

We achieve this mission through multiple avenues including education, community outreach, programs for financial and goods provision, community service, and acting as an individual to third party liaison, in order to maximize resources and streamline and improve the ability to access to housing, human services and economic development initiatives.

At Adopt A House we have over 700 homes registered with us who were seriously affected by Super Storm Sandy. As of 2015, over two years later some of these residents are at a standstill because of insurance, bank or financial issues

We have been working since the storm to help residents recover swiftly by providing information and education. We've heard story after heartbreaking story of loss from our friends and neighbors. All along we've been been searching for the right solution to help these houses fundraise directly and individually. Until now: Any donation made to a house through this fundraiser will go directly to that house. No red tape.


Any donation made to Adopt A House is considered tax-deductible because we are a 501C3 non-profit.
