About Hurricane Ida

After leaving Louisiana, Hurricane Ida raged up the East Coast, powering through parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York on the night of September 1. We continue to pray for the safety and well-being of those impacted by the powerful storm. Here in New Jersey, several tornados touched down, houses and church buildings were flooded, 27 people died and many have had to leave their homes.

Although a lot of damage is less visible than it was during Sandy, the impact has more severe, particularly on those marginalized communities that have already been impacted by the pandemic or are serving people who rent rather than own. What they are receiving from insurance or state or federal assistance falls well short of what they need to recover.

GNJ continues to work supporting families impacted by Hurricane Ida. These homeowners have been without State or Federal aid since September 2021 and GNJ is a leading nonprofit in organizing and having case managers to support them
