Dear Friends & Partners,
CHURCHES HAVE BEEN THE BEDROCK OF OUR SOCIETY FOR THE PAST 200 YEARS. CHURCHES AND CLERGIES WORK TIRELESSLY EVERYDAY IN THE TRENCHES OF OUR COMMUNITIES PROVIDING MUCH NEEDED SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE, SOCIAL SUPPORT SERVICES AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. MILLIONS OF INFANTS, CHILDREN, YOUTH AND ADULTS RECEIVE HELP THROUGH:
sandy

  • Elementary, Secondary & Higher Education
  • Food Pantry & Soup Kitchen
  • Adult Education
  • Elderly Care
  • Transportation services
  • Health Care
  • Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Programs
  • Youth Leadership Development
  • Entrepreneurship Development
  • Affordable Housing, Mediation & Counseling
  • Prison Re-entry Program
  • Job Training & Employment Services
  • Marriage & Family Counseling & Intervention

Kindly take a look at this event that the Almighty laid on our hearts for churches devastated by the Hurricane. Although FEMA & SBA will help, any financial help will be in form of a LOAN. Some churches may not qualify. I had the same help on Sept 11, 2009. I was unable to pay back until recently. Most of these churches affected may never stand the chance to open again.
Bishop Owhe

COMMUNITY BANKS

HELPING COMMUNITY RECOVER
IN WAKE OF HURRICANE SANDY STORM DISASTER

A community forum is being organized
with leading community banks
to have a face a face meeting
with the clergy and businesses
devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
The aftermath of the storm left many clergy, churches ad businesses destroyed and completely paralyzed.
Much as FEMA, SBA & Fund for the City, would like to assist,
the cost involved far exceeds these recovery measures.

OBJECT OF THE FORUM

  • To access recovery needs
  • To identify recovery resource gaps
  • To seek workable startegies to work with the clergy and business in recovery
  • To build an economic recovery bloc for a sustained recovery
  • To prevent clergy’s and businesses from becoming victims of fraud & malpractices
  • To give light and bring life back to a community
  • To institute a technical assistance recovery program

Subject: FEMA Deadline Extension

Did You Provide Emergency Services to Storm Victims? Was Your Office Damaged? You May Be Eligible for Assistance from FEMA. FEMA’s public assistance program provides supplemental financial assistance to certain non-profit organizations for response and recovery activities required as a result of a disaster.

The deadline to apply for assistance has been extended to December 31, 2012. To be considered for this program, you must submit a Request for Public Assistance to the NYS Office of Emergency Management. Forms can be faxed to 518-322-4984. For information on eligibility and forms, visit http://www.dhses.ny.gov/oem/recovery/

DONATION OF BUILDING MATERIALS

We are seeking donations from building warehouses or business towards rebuilding efforts of the Churches damaged by the storm. Kindly assist us to engage and reach out to organizations and stores that can donate towards these efforts. We will also appreciate any lead towards this cause.

All donations can come to the ELECT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

FREE LEGAL ASSISTANCE FOR VICTIMS OF THE HURRICANE

Starting Thursday, homeowners who have been having trouble getting help from insurers and the feds can get free legal assistance at Brooklyn Borough Hall from a group of volunteer lawyers. Thanks to the Brooklyn Borough President, the Brooklyn Bar Association and the Brooklyn Law School.

Thousands of low and middle income families need legal help with their struggles to get insurance payouts and government aid for Hurricane Sandy losses. The legal clinics will be held Tuesday (1-4 pm) and Thursday (9-12 noon) at Brooklyn, Boro hall. They can also call the clinic’s hotline: 718-802-3890.

Governor Announces $27M Federal Grant to Hire Unemployed New Yorkers to Help With Sandy Relief Effort

FEMA Temp Workers Also Needed

Thanks to a $27 million federal grant announced by Governor Cuomo, 5,000 unemployed New Yorkers in Sandy-affected counties — Brooklyn included — will be put to work helping to clean up storm-damaged communities.

Anyone interested in applying for a job under this grant is encouraged to contact the Department of Labor at 1-888-4-NYSDOL (1-888-469-7365), visit www.labor.ny.gov/sandyjobs or go to their local Disaster Recovery Center. The nearest DRCs are located at the Shorefront YM-YWHA, 3300 Coney Island Avenue; Social Security Building/Gravesend, 10 Bouck Court; and the Gerritsen Little League Field, 2901 Gerritsen Avenue. Hours are 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. seven days a week.

All individuals must be unemployed to be eligible. Once hired, workers will earn approximately $15 per hour to work on short and long-term projects. The work will include cleaning and repairing damaged public structures and property in each of the nine counties declared disaster areas.

In addition to offering benefits and on-the-job experience, each worker will be given assistance in finding their next job. Eligible youth will also be certified in the Governor’s New York Youth Works program.

Under a separate initiative, the state has partnered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to launch a local hire program to replace FEMA employees, often from out of state, with New Yorkers. The goal is to hire upwards of 700 New Yorkers.

Those interested in applying for a job with FEMA should visit Governor Cuomo’s Jobs Express website at http://www.labor.ny.gov/jobs/regional.shtm. The full-time, temporary positions range from Community Relations Specialists providing outreach to the disaster-stricken communities, to administrative assistants.
