We hope that you all safely weathered the storm. We know many people are without homes, transportation and child care. While this is difficult for everyone, we at ACNJ are especially concerned about the children.
Help is available for families. The Department of Human Services has published a web page with links to various resources.
The Department of Children and Families is providing a toll-free, 24-hour hotline to help with various issues, including for foster parents who need assistance and child care providers that are unable to open because of the storm. The number is 1-877-652-2873.
You can also visit the State of New Jersey’s Hurricaine Sandy Information Center, which has comprehensive information about storm recovery. We hope this is helpful and that help is available to all who need it.
Tomorrow is Election Day
Consumed by coping with the aftermath of Sandy, many of us may not have had time to find out how and where we can vote tomorrow, especially with some towns having to move the polling places because of the storm. You can find the location of your polling place by texting the word “where” to 877-877 and following the reply prompts.
You can also go to your county clerk’s office today between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. and on Election Day between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Click here to find a list of county clerk offices.
Voters displaced by the storm have several voting options. For the most comprehensive information, go to http://nj.gov/state/elections/index.html.
Again we hope this information is helpful in the wake of the storm. All our best wishes for a safe and speedy recovery.
