The next disaster to strike SheepsheadBay is not a question of “if,” but “when.” That is why we are here today. The coalition is being formed with the support of the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s Recovery Fund.
The coalition has a dual purpose. We want to ensure that the relief effort from Sandy continues, but we also want to create a long-term mechanism for resiliency that will prepare the community against future disasters. The hope is to see as many local community organizations and citizens as possible collaborating on this initiative. The only way to accomplish a comprehensive long-term recovery plan will be through local involvement and participation. You know what SheepsheadBay’s needs are…and we need your voice to make the work of the Coalition successful.
