Superstorm Sandy recovery and rebuilding efforts

On Sunday, Oct. 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy slammed into the United States’ East Coast, impacting 16 states and Washington, D.C. 


As ravaged cities recovered from the massive damage caused by floods, wind and fire, Habitat for Humanity helped to address the varying levels of shelter, housing repair and rebuilding needs.

We are working closely with FEMA and other relief agencies to meet unmet needs, avoid duplication of efforts and maximize available resources.

Our response

We have identified low-income families in need of immediate assistance and ensured the safety and security of these families.

Our response strategy includes:

  • Community clean up
  • Emergency home repairs 
  • Home repairs and rehabs
  • New house construction
  • Ongoing support through Habitat ReStores
