CART works to meet unmet needs of county flood victims

NORWICH – The Chenango Area Recovery Team (CART) was organized in August after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) suggested it would be a useful tool to help get the community back on its feet in the aftermath of the June flood. Made up of local non-profit organizations, the group has formalized a system to recover from this disaster and to be in place in the event of future events.

“We have all of these agencies working together,” said CART director and Catholic Charities Crime Victim’s Advocate Derek Stratton. “It’s a great mix that continues to show up and help this cause.” Representatives from First Call for Help, Project Recovery, Mental Health, Catholic Charities, Opportunities for Chenango, The Place, Habitat for Humanity, The Salvation Army, The Red Cross, Department of Social Services and the United Way were instrumental in getting the group started.
