Billy and his family’s home was one of many in their Port Monmouth neighborhood severely damaged by Sandy. While other organizations gave them some assistance, the family’s recovery didn’t start in earnest until they linked up with A Future with Hope. As Billy put it, AFWH was his ‘saving grace’ and it’s clear from our interview with him that this feeling came from interacting with the volunteers and staff helping the family rebuild. Volunteers from across the country worked on Billy’s home, and made fast friends with the family. Watch the video below to hear more of Billy’s story!
