Superstorm Sandy was the most destructive storm New Jersey has ever experienced.250,000 homes were affected
82,000 homes sustained major damage
161,000 people were displaced.
6 months after the storm an estimated 22,000 families had not been able to move back into their homes.
A recovery of this size takes time, resources, and money.
We are thankful to receive generous support from the American Red Cross, the Robin Hood Foundation, UMCOR, the Hurricane Sandy NJ Relief Fund and the people of the United Methodist Church in New Jersey and around the world.
It will cost more than $21 million to reach our goal of rebuilding 500 homes. We need your help to make it happen.
On average it costs:
$10,400 for construction materials for each home
$2,000 to $2,500 to install new kitchen cabinets
$1000 to replace and install a bathroom tub and sink
$500 to replace both the front and back door
$300 to purchase and install a kitchen sink and faucet
$150 for a toilet installation
$100 for a 5 gallon bucket of finishing paint.
You can help with a donation today!
We ask each of our volunteers to make a donation to help defray the cost of construction materials and housing. Each volunteer is asked to contribute $20 per night to offset housing costs and $100 per week to support building materials.
If you are volunteering with A Future with Hope you should make your donation on the registration pages so that it can be tracked directly with your registration.
If you can't volunteer but would like to help, you can match the volunteer contribution of $220.
