MONMOUTH COUNTY LONG-TERM RECOVERY GROUP
WE GET IT DONE.
Imagine waking up one day and realizing that your home is gone -- a hurricane blasted through the area and swept your life away, leaving only a pile of rubble in its place. Two and a half years after Superstorm Sandy, this is still the reality for thousands of New Jersey residents.
Many in our home of Monmouth County are still waiting to rebuild. State programs have been slow, insurance payouts weren't enough, and thousands of families are balancing rental payments while still paying a mortgage on a demolished home. There is so much to be done that it is overwhelming for one person to undertake themselves.
WE PROVIDE HOPE.
The Monmouth County Long-Term Recovery Group (MCLTRG) has been working with residents throughout one of New Jersey's most damaged counties for two years.
To date we have contributed almost $2 million to over 200 families to complete their recoveries and return residents to safe, sanitary, secure and functional housing.
Our Disaster Case Managers work one-on-one with residents throughout their recovery to help them navigate an oftentimes confusing process. Our Construction Managers help ensure rebuild and repair jobs are complete quickly, safely, and for a fair price. Our Volunteer Coordinator finds meaningful work for volunteers from all over the world.
Most of our small, dedicated team of staff have been involved with Sandy recovery since the very beginning. This is our passion.
WE ARE THE COMPLETE PACKAGE.
Hundreds of families have been helped by MCLTRG, but hundreds more still need assistance. We are running low on funds and need your help!
Every donation counts, and will help us complete recovery in Monmouth County.
TOGETHER, WE WILL GET IT DONE.
