CT Rises has sponsored a volunteer team from World Renew to conduct a disaster-related needs assessment in Connecticut. World Renew volunteers are experts in assessing and quantifying disaster-related property damage. Their objective is to provide Sandy survivors with unresolved storm damage to their homes access to a needs assessment team who can quantify necessary repair costs which can then be used to apply for assistance from newly available funding resources.

The World Renew visit is the culmination of many months of coordination between the many volunteer organizations involved in CT Rises. This past weekend, World Renew team members canvassed Connecticut neighborhoods that were hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy. Starting tomorrow, World Renew volunteers will open walk-in centers that are available for storm-impacted individuals and families. The walk-in centers will be staffed by a needs assessment team from World Renew and volunteers from CT Rises affiliated organizations.

All those impacted by Hurricane Sandy are encouraged to visit a walk-in center to meet with team members and gather valuable information that can help them gain access to disaster-recovery resources.
