American Red CrossThe American Red Cross Website helps locate Red Cross Chapters throughout New Jersey. The most visible and well-known of Red Cross disaster relief activities are sheltering and feeding. The Red Cross opens shelters for those displaced by a disaster and provides meals and snacks to families and to emergency workers in affected areas. After a disaster trained Red Cross interviewers meet one on one with families to determine their needs. The assistance may include providing the means for them to pay for groceries, new clothes, rent, emergency home repairs, transportation, medicines, and tools. The Red Cross also lets people know about other community or government resources available to them and helps those needing long-term recovery assistance when other resources are inadequate. Red Cross nurses deliver first aid and attend to other health-related matters. The Red Cross may help pay for certain medical needs, including prescription medicines, medical supplies, and emergency medical treatment. The Red Cross also provides blood and blood products.

Disaster Reliefhas 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.Somerset CountyDisaster ReliefCatholic Charties, Diocese of Metuchen

Hurricane Sandy Recovery Information CenterIn response to Hurricane Sandy, organizations involved in the VOAD have stepped up to form a Long Term Recovery Committee (LTRC). The LTRC is a voluntary association of organizations involved in relief, recovery, rebuilding and community development. The LTRC has established working committees to accomplish the goal of helping residents recover from the devastation of the storm. The LTRC operates according to a set of policies originally developed in Somerset County that will guide our assistance to victims. Our tasks include the following: Needs Assessment/Case Management Case managers will meet one-on-one with victims to determine their unmet needs after FEMA and their insurance have provided assistance. The Case Manager assigned to the client will bring to the LTRC a request for funds to meet these needs. Fairness and confidentiality of clients are of paramount importance in this effort. Construction Management We will have on staff a Construction Supervisor to provide assessments and cost estimates prior to the start of construction. Several nonprofit organizations provide construction services, and several Rotarians have offered to serve as general contractors. We will also hire contractors as funds allow. Emotional and Spiritual Care The emotional effects on victims is enormous, and several organizations and religious groups are providing counseling.
