***New York City Disaster Assistance Service Center Call Tomorrow at 3pm for Nonprofits***
New York City is setting up Disaster Assistance Service Centers (DASCs), which will provide support in dedicated areas. The City will coordinate with nonprofits to support New Yorkers in need of services in these areas. All nonprofits assisting in recovery efforts are encouraged to participate.
The first call is at 3pm tomorrow, Monday, November 5th; HSC will send out the agenda, call-in information, and how to RSVP (if necessary) as soon as it becomes available (and NYAPRS will forward it thereafter).
As New York recovers from Hurricane Sandy, nonprofits are mobilizing to assist in immediate recovery efforts and to coordinate long-term strategies to help people rebuild.
HSC is working with government, our members, and others to compile information that is helpful to the sector.
Please see the attached document to find out how you can help and valuable resources for your organization as you participate in relief efforts. We will be updating this list periodically.
