The event gave victims the chance to get help with mortgages and other rebuilding needs.

One representative from Hope Now talked about their goals for helping victims long-term.

“We just want to one, help spread the word that there is help and assistance available to them. I know we’re about two months now after the storm or so, but we just want people to know that there are programs out there for you,” said Oliver Samuel-Jakubos, of Hope Now.



If you could not make it out, Samuel-Jakubos says you can go online to get help from some of these agencies.
