One Year Ago Our Lives Were Changed Forever...

As we reflect on the one-year anniversary of superstorm Sandy, we want to thank ALL of the volunteers, supporters and countless others who have helped us return over 50 families to their homes. Our work, however, is far from complete. So many families from across Monmouth County are still displaced and continue to struggle one year later. We are grateful for all of the support we have received since our recovery work began. We ask that you continue to help us reach our goal of serving 100 Sandy impacted families in the next year. 

2013 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter 
Work Project in Union Beach

In the beginning of October, over 500 volunteers arrived in Union Beach to participate in the 2013 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The project, held over three days, helped 18 Sandy impacted families in Union Beach. On October 12, the town and our affiliate welcomed former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, as they completed their week-long journey to four additional Carter Work Project sites throughout the country.


Please read more about the project including photos, videos and links to media coverage by visiting the Carter Work Project page on
