Volunteer in Rockaway with Ft Greene Based Disaster Relief Org

 74-16 Beach Channel Dr Arverne NY 11692  See map

Respond & Rebuild was founded by two Fort Greene residents and their former co-workers from Haiti who started up a disaster relief organization post-Hurricane Sandy.

For the foreseeable future, volunteers will be part of mold remediation teams, lead by experts in the field, and will remediate mold in Rockaways residents' homes. Respond & Rebuild screens clients to prioritize according to need, trains volunteers, and provides transportation to both safety/skills orientations and job sites, as well as providing appropriate personal protective equipment. 

It's a dirty, meticulous job, although anyone who can do manual labor for a day can learn the proper DOH-approved methods. Those with construction skills who can commit to participating on an on-going basis are encouraged to do so. Please bring a bagged lunch. Water will be provided.

*At this time we cannot accept volunteers under the age of 16.
