BRIDGING THE GAP
Research shows that the majority of cases can take several weeks, if not months, before receiving relief money. If you’re really lucky and have a great insurance company you may receive an emergency check in the first couple of weeks. However, the majority of the time, that’s simply not the case.
It’s not just about the red tape. While you and your family wait and wait for a decision, the stressful effects of the disaster continue to plague you relentlessly: living without electricity or an intact roof, while you desperately try to find a few dollars here and there, just to feed your family.
There is no feeling more helpless than not knowing how to provide the necessities of life for those you love.
The financial burden can be overwhelming during a natural disaster. Remember too, in the event of a natural disaster, usually the entire neighborhood or even town may be in the same predicament as you are in. Even though we cannot help everyone, we work closely with local community leaders in your area… ones who know the neighborhood and possibly even you and your family. This way, our assistance will be much more effective as we try to provide what is really needed by people in your area. Receiving emergency funds for necessities such as clothes, food, transportation, or even generators can provide a much needed morale boost.
