CT Rises is sponsoring a volunteer team from World Renew to conduct a disaster-related needs assessment in Connecticut. Volunteers will be canvasing the Milford shoreline today and tomorrow.
World Renew volunteers are commonly referred to as the ‘Green Shirts,” a reference to the uniform the teams wear as a means of being easily identifiable within communities. The Green Shirts are experts in assessing and quantifying disaster-related property damage. Their objective is to provide Sandy survivors with unresolved storm damage to their homes access to a needs assessment team who can quantify necessary repair costs which can then be used to apply for assistance from newly available funding resources.
