Post-Storm Update

By Schroeder Stribling, N Street Village Executive Director

Our community is thankful to have made it safely through Hurricane Sandy.  We maintained power throughout the entire storm and there were no significant building problems reported at any of our locations.  Our staff did a great job keeping our most essential services running smoothly.  Our drop-in day center (Bethany Women’s Center) remained open both days to provide basic services to our city’s most vulnerable people and we had no disruption in our provision of safe and warm housing and shelter for 142 formerly homeless women and the more than 50 families and individuals in our affordable housing building.  I want to take this moment to thank the staff of N Street Village who ensured that we continued to offer the hospitality and hope that is our long-standing commitment and the heart of our mission.  Our thoughts are  with those who continue to feel the effects of this devastating storm.
