Disaster Relief

 
General Information
Description of Servicehas dispersed over two million dollars in aid to the families and victims of the terrorist attacks. It became the mission of the Disaster Relief Program to assist anyone within the four counties of the Diocese whose life has been directly impacted by these events. In the days immediately following the attacks, the 108 parishes within Middlesex, Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren counties provided Catholic Charities, Diocese of Metuchen, with $500,000 collected from their parishioners, to assist families of the September 11th victims. Catholic Charities USA provided an additional $1,010,000 of aid. The United Way of Central Jersey and the United Way of Somerset, who contracted with Catholic Charities to act as the lead agency in their efforts in those areas of New Jersey, provided over half a million dollars of additional funding. Thanks to such widespread generosity of spirit, the disaster relief team was able to distribute this money to aid families in need, regardless of race or religious background.

In addition to the work done for the families and victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks and the victims of Hurricane Floyd, the program now works with the state's Family Advocacy Program to provide ongoing case management to the families in Middlesex and Somerset Counties who lost loved ones in these events.
