Hurricane Matthew Recovery

Hurricane Matthew has dramatically impacted coastal Georgia, leaving downed trees and power lines, extensive flooding, and closed roads in its wake. Luckily, property damage at UCP of Georgia’s coastal locations is modest, even though officials have called this the worst storm the area has seen in 150 years.

In Savannah, UCP of Georgia offers residential support and community day services to 60 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 30 of these individuals relied on us for evacuation to safety ahead of the storm.

All members of the UCP family in Savannah are now in need of disaster funds to cover the costs of evacuation, home repair and cleanup, and other accommodation costs incurred during a lengthy evacuation while awaiting restoration of utilities in Chatham County.

Those of us unaffected by Hurricane Matthew may be looking for ways to help in the aftermath of this monumental storm. You can help UCP of Georgia now by using the gold Donate button below to send your Disaster Recovery gift.
