Youth Mission Trip

LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK – JUNE 24-30, 2018

Post-Disaster Relief Mission Trip

THE MISSION

Superstorm Sandy devastated the east coast as it crashed into the shoreline with historic force and quickly moved into the heart of New York and New Jersey in 2012. After the waters receded, Sandy claimed over 100 lives on the coast, destroyed thousands of homes, and left millions without power — and even more without hope.

As Next Step Ministries drove around just days after the storm had passed, they saw FEMA stations, relief workers, NYPD, fireman, and the National Guard. It was one week after the storm and first response was hard at work, but they couldn’t help but wonder, what will happen to these families in the long run? Who will help them if FEMA or their insurance companies don’t meet all the needs?

This is where the Next Step Ministries partnership began.
