One of the primary functions of the Long Term Recovery Group is Disaster Response. After coordinating relief efforts from the many CBOs in the Lower East Side following Hurricane Sandy, LES Ready! has continued to respond to disasters with resources, personnel, information, and expertise. LES Ready! has responded to disasters such as the Middle Collegiate Church Fire, where we were able to help families who lost their homes find new residences, and COVID-19, where we provided needed PPE and gloves to medical professionals when they were in short supply at the beginning of the pandemic. LES Ready! also plays a critical role in assisting member organizations that provide direct services to direct their resources where they are needed.
