Superstorm Sandy – Stories of Recovery

Last week, two Superstorm Sandy affected homeowners participating in NYDIS’ and the Center for NYC Neighborhoods’ Temporary Housing Services (THS) program received the keys to their newly elevated and rebuilt homes.

After being displaced for over a year, Ms. Winters moved back to her #BreezyPoint, Queens home. “After she was accepted into the NYC Build It Back program, she was referred to NYDIS. Through our Master Lease program we secured a fully furnished rental home for Ms. Winters,” said NYDIS’ Caseworker Zach who supported Ms. Winters throughout her displacement. “NYDIS’ staff were so friendly throughout this entire process and I am especially appreciative of all of all their help. Everyone was so supportive while I stayed in the rental apartment and I always had someone at NYDIS to reach out to in when I had concerns.” Ms. Winters stated. Zach was honored to join Ms. Winters on her move back day. Welcome home!
