You can Help Hurricane Maria Survivors in New Haven. Please Spread the Word...

U.S. Citizens whose lives have been severely disrupted by Hurricane Maria, who have lost their homes, their jobs, and in some cases their loved ones, are arriving in New Haven every day. These fellow U.S. citizens come here because of a family or a historic connection to our city. Like most disaster victims they arrive with few resources.

JUNTA for Progressive Action is acting as the Central Resource Center for Victims of Hurricane Maria who have evacuated to New Haven. Volunteer help is needed!

HOW YOU Can Help:

Option 1: If you are bilingual (English/Spanish), feel comfortable speaking on the phone JUNTA needs your help. Basic computer skills are helpful but not required for this volunteer opportunity. If you want to volunteers click on this link to share information about your availability.*

Option 2: If you are not bilingual, you can help by sharing this information with people you know who might be able to assist. Anyone you know who is able to help is more likely to help if they are asked to do so by someone they know.
