MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO OUR PARTNERS IN COMPASSION

I want to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you!

Your generosity and compassion this past year helped alleviate suering for thousands of families, both here and abroad. rough your support, we restored homes, and more importantly, the hope and spirit of low-income and elderly victims of Superstorm Sandy in New Jersey – families who cannot recover on their own. Our work there will continue throughout 2015.

Our top domestic priorities continued to be disaster recovery. 2009 marked IRT's fourth year of deploying bi-monthly construction teams to repair the homes of elderly and low-income families damaged by Hurricane Katrina. IRT also provided financial assistance for the unmet needs of California fire victims, and assembled storage sheds as a first step in helping these families rebuild their homes and their lives.
