220 of the 800 people who live in YAI homes were displaced.5 residences were severely damaged.Millions of dollars were lost.
It's now time to deal with this reality, even if it was the last thing on our minds while the safety and security of residents was a real concern.
Relocating people and repairing damaged structures is not inexpensive, but when a program is unable to operate the daily costs mount very quickly. YAI was forced to suspend many programs for as much as a week and the loss of revenue is in the millions.
The Fund will also help us purchase generators for our 100 group homes. While the total cost of providing permanent generators is not modest- an estimated $1 million- it seems clear that we must have back-up systems to rely on when the power grid is compromised. It's a matter of peace of mind as well as the avoidance of disruption and expense.
