Friends & neighbors we need your help please. Puerto Rican families who've been displaced by hurricane Maria are temporarily living in hotels (paid for by FEMA)... ONLY HAVE UNTIL JANUARY 13TH before they are kicked out. Why?!? Because of lack of political will from Trump. WE NEED YOUR HELP. There are a host of things that can be done to assist these families. HOW TO HELP: 1) TRANSPORTATION- all of the families have been actively looking for housing, but it's impossible for them to travel on the city bus to and from appointments during the day to look for a place to live. Is anyone willing to provide rides to different locations within the Hartford and the greater Hartford area to help them look for housing? 2) EMPLOYMENT- All of the 30 family HEAD OF HOUSEHOLDS ARE PROFESSIONALS. They've arrived to Hartford with skills/trades and certifications some in carpentry, electricians, nurses, psychologists, teachers, bakers and more... Do you directly know of any place that is hiring? Can you sit down with some of these individuals to help them upgrade their resumes and connect them to the specific person you know that is hiring? 3) HOUSING- at this moment only 2 families out of the 30 families, have secured housing. ALL HAVE BEEN ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR HOUSING. If you know of anyone who is a) renting an apartment, b) has an extra apartment that will allow a family to stay there until they get situated, c) has spare bedrooms, can you make a connection and personal introduction. 4) FOOD-The families need one warm cooked dinner. The hotel where they are staying at does not have any kitchens. The only way they can warm up food is via one shared microwave. A generous angel, Lydia Velez-Herrera, has been kind enough to cook for the families on weekdays. But she needs to have access to a big kitchen in Hartford since she is traveling from Bristol. Does anyone know of a kitchen that she might be able to use? SAMA has been great in securing a some food for her to cook but are there others who are willing to help in this area? Are there restaurants out there who are willing to donate food during the weekends? Or any individuals who are willing to cook one meal for Saturday and one on Sunday?
5) NEED TO GATHER INFO. We need several bilingual volunteers to spend a couple of hours to write down important information For example, many of these families have been turned away several times from State agencies when requesting help, as well as Federal agencies (photo of families who lost everything by FEMA pictured here for example was informed their case with FEMA was closed without resolving!). Thus, all of this must be documented so that action can follow. Are there any bilingual folks out there that can help in this area so that we can document what's occurring and the URGENCY.
WHAT MAKES THESE FAMILIES DIFFERENT from others who've been displaced by the Hurricane? Many of the families staying in the hotel like the one in Hartford (being paid for by FEMA), don't know anyone here, not a soul. They are completely new to the area. While for others who've arrived and have been able to stay with either relatives or friends, they have someone who can guide them and steer them in the right direction. We are extremely thankful to individuals and ALL the agencies that have been generously helping to collect resources for ALL families displaced by Hurricane Maria. And to many who've taken it upon themselves to help in ways big and small. But for those families who are staying in temporary hotels their time is running out in a couple of days. Plans need to be set so that they can get back on their feet. We have spoken directly to the families. They're not looking for handouts, all they need is just a little assistance to help them navigate their new home and to be able to start a new life. Here's a photo of one of the families who lived in Ciales in a wooden house, they lost everything due to Hurricane Maria. IF YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE EMAIL ME & Councilman James Sanchez: Wildaliz.bermudez@hartford.gov or James.Sanchez@hartford.gov THANK YOU GRATELY, EVERY BIT OF ASSISTANCE WILL MAKE A WORLD OF A DIFFERENCE! GRACIAS!!! James Sanchez and I spoke with the families on Friday. Let's help our new neighbors And to many who've taken it upon themselves to help in ways so many ways Thank you CREC,thank you to Alex Mercado ,Peter Mercado, State RepresentativeAngel Arce, Samuel Vega Ana Valentin Luna VJ , Aura Alvarado, Jeffrey P. Dressler, Eddie Perez, Carmen C.,Jeanette Hernandez, Josh Michtom and the many behind the scenes.
