Revisiting Sandy: A Look Back

A year ago, the tri-state area was still reeling from the onslaught of Hurricane Sandy. Over the next weeks and months, the recovery process was a study in resiliency, collaboration, and cooperation. Everyone lent a helping hand to those in need, even if they themselves were victims of the storm.

Some of those most severely affected by the storm were also those responsible for repairing its damage. First responders. Utility and service providers. Healthcare employees. Transit workers. These intrepid individuals put their own problems on hold to return to their stations to ensure that our city got back online as soon as possible. But who helped them?

CCA, among others.

Less than 24 hours after the storm passed, CCA clinical staff were on site to support our clients’ employees throughout Long Island, Brooklyn, Staten Island, and Manhattan. Over the next three weeks, CCA counselors went on-site more than 80 times in devastated areas, offering counseling services in makeshift tents, company buses, and cars because there were no buildings left intact.
