A message from our charity recipiant...
Dear New York/New Jersey residents,
We hope this letter finds you safe and dry after Hurricane Sandy. Architecture for Humanity NY and Headquarters are going to be working diligently to respond to the damage caused by Sandy. We are at the beginning stages of understanding how the organization will be able to support the recover and rebuild after Sandy. Right now the need is relief and recovery but very soon it will be long term reconstruction. Beyond the large scale water and wind damage we need to think about upgrading and restoring in a more sustainable and resilient manner. We want to make sure that communities are built back better and you can read Architecture for Humanities reconstruction plan here. Our immediate response is to gather information. To do this, we need to get on the ground and talk to people who have been affected by the storm and record the damages. We are looking for information about the physical structure, how damaged it is, how large it is, where it is, who the owner is, and how to contact them because hopefully, we'll be able to help. We do not want to get in the way of efforts being made to provide immediate relief to these residences, but it is imperative to gain as much information as possible now.
In order for you to help us with these efforts, you must fill out the volunteer form found here for the Chapter Network and sign the volunteer waiver (this will be available at the meeting tomorrow, see below) so that we can properly respond to situations. This information will also help us to correctly place people in the right teams and locations as we move forward with assessment and recovery. Any time that you can donate will be greatly appreciated. We encourage you to speak with your employers about allowing you the time to volunteer during normal work hours. Firms that allow employees will be recognized on the Architecture for Humanity Recognition on the Disaster Resiliency and Recovery Program Page. Beyond the good publicity, this is a huge opportunity for firms to be involved in the long term recovery of our city. There will be many property owners looking to Architecture for Humanity for professional service recommendations. Your firm will be listed in our directory that we share as owners begin to rebuild commercial projects.
If you would like to report damages to your home, business, or general community you can use the form found here so that Architecture for Humanity can track areas of greatest need for design services. Architecture for Humanity will filter request as they come in. However, they are not able to assist in all situations. Architecture for Humanity has also posted a list of resources and information for Flooding Repair Strategies.
Architecture for Humanity NY has been lucky enough to never have to deal with such a disaster and recovery project in our area and it is now time for the chapter to rise up and take the lead in the recovery and smart rebuilding of our great city. We hope to gain more information about how you can help, for more information, please check here.
