VALOR heads to Tinian; volunteers needed

(Press Release) — Recovery post-Yutu continues as we welcome VALOR or Voluntary Agencies Leading and Organizing Repair to the island of Tinian.

On Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 9 a.m., the Tinian Mayor's Office, together with the Second Senatorial District, will be teaming up with the FEMA VALOR Program and C.A.R.E. to perform some roofing repairs on homes that have been approved by the VALOR program guidance.

We ask for volunteers to help homeowners rebuild their roof so that their homes are a safe place to reside. As a request, we also encourage volunteers to bring tools such as a tape measure, hammer, handsaw, screwdrivers (Phillip and flathead), drill, and others that are beneficial to the project.

The program will be providing some tools required to the project site.

VALOR provides emergency home repairs for owners, renters and occupants whose primary residence was damaged by Super Typhoon Yutu. You may qualify for the FEMA VALOR Program if you have not previously received SBA funding or FEMA assistance for home repairs related to this disaster. Please contact cnmi-valor@fema.dhs.gov to verify if you are eligible for repairs through VALOR.

VALOR repairs are limited to windows, doors, electrical, plumbing, accessibility needs, and roofing damage caused by Yutu.

Anyone interested in the volunteer opportunity may call 433-1800/1802 for Vanessa Manglona or email vanessamanglona.mot@gmail.com.
