Following Superstorm Sandy, RTLI helped many families rebuild and get their lives back on track. Watch the video to see more...
Today, years after the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, our work continues. In 2015, we were awarded a significant grant from the NYS Affordable Housing Corporation to repair twelve homes on the south shore of Long Island that still suffer from the devastating effects of this storm. Our work will continue throughout 2016.
RTLI was pleased to have Assemblyman Todd Kaminsky lend a hand as our first two projects got underway in Long Beach.
In April 2016, we had the opportunity to work with the wonderful people of Race2Rebuild and many volunteers joined us to work on an additional three projects in the Long Beach area. Our heartfelt thanks go to all those you participated.
