For the residents who suffered broken windows, damage to their roofs, cars, sidewalks, and to the structural integrity of their homes, we must work them through this process to recover funds and to start the rebuilding."

Working with the Community Emergency Response Team, we will work with each family, each car owner, each home owner to aid them."
