Mission + Vision

On Monday, October 29, 2012, Our lives changed forever when Super Storm Sandy aka Hurricane Sandy devastated our communities. This storm took lives, homes, personal property and ruined many happy homes. Beacon of Hope NY Resource Center was started as a results of Sandy, in which we continue to provide helpful information to all victims of Sandy and all the affected community. We will keep staying a resource center and providing helpful information in getting the all of Sandy Victims back home. We will also continue doing events in our community for the Senior Citizens who lost their Friendship Club as a results of Hurricane Sandy. Please watch for important updated information concerning Sandy and FEMA. Beacon of Hope NY Staff is committed on providing and helping all communities affected by Super Storm Sandy aka Hurricane Sandy. 


We would like to thank everyone for the support that have shown to Beacon of Hope NY, that has made this all possible for us to keep given back to our communities!
