When Hurricane Ida slammed the East Coast in 2021, Passaic County, New Jersey bore the brunt of the storm.
In the wake of devastation, the heart of Passaic County was witness to both the impact of destruction and the incredible power of community coming together.
This is a story of resilience, strength, and the transformative impact of generosity – a story that speaks to the mission of Disaster Services Corporation, a subsidiary of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.
Imagine a single parent courageously navigating life with four precious children. When Hurricane Ida’s fury struck, their world was turned upside down. The family was forced to leave their home and seek refuge in a shelter in nearby Bergen County. But amidst the chaos, their determination and love for each other remained unshaken.
In collaboration with The Salvation Army and Compass 82, DSC was able to give this family more than $13,000 to help them find permanent housing, stability, and hope.
The family’s resilience and hope captured the attention of Disaster Services Corporation. And thanks to compassionate donors like you, a chain reaction of support helped give this family a path to recovery.
