Atlantic County disaster organizations provide assistance to Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTIC CITY -

For those in Atlantic County still looking for Sandy recovery assistance there is help available. Dozens of organizations gathered in Atlantic City for a Sandy memorial event hosted by the Atlantic County Long Term Recovery Group.

It will forever be a day in New Jersey history that no one will ever forget.

The day Kevin Kelener's life was turned upside down, when Hurricane Sandy made landfall. "The storm wasn't even there and the wind, and the ocean was coming off the boardwalk crashing."

One year later he is living with family, still trying to pick up the pieces of a life that Sandy tore apart. "Start a new life. Try to rebuild."

But Kelener isn't alone. There are thousands of people who remain homeless and still need a helping hand.

For those who feel like they have not recovered there is still help. Dozens of organizations are available to provide assistance. One of the service providers on Tuesday was the Salvation Army, who handed out heaters to keep residents warm during the winter months.

New Jersey Hope and Healing was also on site to provide an ear to any Sandy victim who just wanted to talk.

"A lot of people haven't sought help, or haven't received help and have given up hope, so we are still here to talk to those people and tell them there are still services available,” said Jordan Brunette of N.J. Hope and Healing.
