Super Storm Sandy Rebuilding Continues

Brethren Disaster Ministries
"Continuing the Rebuilding after Super Storm Sandy"
Hosted By: Brent Carlson

When it comes to assisting the survivors of disasters...
Brethren Disaster Ministries is usually on the scene long after others have packed up and gone home. A long list of Brethren volunteers have already been to New Jersey communities to assist in the rebuilding of homes devastated by Super Storm Sandy. Weekly volunteer groups are scheduled for many months to come. (Contact BDM at

"Brethren Voices" visits the project site in Toms River, NJ., where a volunteer group of people form Indiana are assisting to rebuild homes at two sites in ocean and Monmouth Counties, New Jersey.

A third site is being prepared for the new construction of apartments for Ocean In., a non-profit organization which provides housing for disabled and low income renters. This is the first phase of the construction of 24 units. For BDM, this is a new opportunity to assist the most vulnerable people of the population, those who must rent their homes. For the renter, there is no Federal Government assistance to rebuilding rental properties. Super Storm Sandy, devastated those who rent homes as well as the home owners. (50,000 private homes were lost to the storm as well as 10,000 rentals)
