Flood affects the heart of the Metro Detroit's Jewish Community & neighbors.
NECHAMA is on the ground providing assistance in and around Metro Detroit. Upon hearing of the dire need throughout the community, our team traveled to the area immediately. A high number of Jewish households have been particularly hard hit by flash flooding. We continue to bring in more staff and equipment to aid in the response efforts.
NECHAMA has a team en route to assist with flood cleanup after heavy rainfall.
Monday evening, the Greater Detroit Michigan area witnessed at least 6 weeks worth of rain in only a few hours, most severely impacting the communities just north of the city, including Southfield, Royal Oak, and Ferndale.
NECHAMA's Executive Director, Bill Driscoll Jr., is a proud AmeriCorps alumus and was recently asked to write a guest post for the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS) official blog. NECHAMA has hosted, trained, and worked alongside CNCS teams in response to floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes all over the country and their impact is clear.
