COASTAL HABITAT “STANDS READY” TO HELP REBUILD: LEARN MORE & DONATE LOCALLY
Upon approval from emergency management officials, Coastal Habitat for Humanity is standing ready to assist in the rebuilding of the community in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
“Our volunteers and staff are prepared to help the community as soon as the first response teams give us the go-ahead,” said Maureen Mulligan, executive director. “Our Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative teams are trained to help with home repairs and are standing by. We are here to repair homes and hopefully help repair lives.” (more below)
Mulligan says she is in regular communication with community leaders from Belmar to Ocean Township identifying and assessing the anticipated specific construction needs of the area. Habitat for Humanity International chose Coastal Habitat, founded in 1984, earlier this year as one of 100 affiliates to launch the Neighborhood Revitalization program, which provides assistance with home repairs as well as education to homeowners.
“We encourage anyone who is aware of a family that will need assistance in the future to reach out to us,” said Mulligan, referring to the organization’s website, Facebook page and phone (732.974.2422).
Coastal Habitat is asking for financial donations to assist with the rebuilding of the area. All donations directly impact the local community and can be made online at CoastalHabitat.org/donate, as well as via mail.
