On Wednesday, May 23rd, Marina Diaz, World Cares Center Programs Manager, met with members of the Wayne VOAD committee; our focus in the meeting was getting the word out to individual citizens in Wayne County and their neighbors about the Hurricane Relief efforts being handled by the committee and other partnering agencies. Topics discussed were:
- Effectively reaching out to the homeowners with unmet needs;
- Alerting the homeowners about the various free resources being offered to homeowners who were affected by the flood;
- Provide answers to questions such as: Who can help me with the mold situation that is still ongoing in my home caused by the flood waters of Hurricane Irene? Where can I get rebuilding assistance?
The committee is also reaching out to World Cares Center to train local citizens on Volunteer Safety, Muckout and Mold Mitigation. The ability to have a coordinated volunteer group within your community increases the recovery time and reinforces the connectivity of neighbor helping neighbor. Let’s take action and move towards a resilient community. Get Trained, Get Involved.
