Before the hurricane, the RAs provided residents, through events like Family Day, with arts and crafts for seniors and tutoring for children. But programming was suspended due to extensive storm damage to offices, supplies and equipment.
- Who: Brooklyn Community Services and Unity Towers Residents Association;
- What: Family Day and grand re-opening of 3 offices serving the Coney Island community;
- Where: Unity Towers Courtyard, 2001-2029 Surf Ave, Coney Island, New York;

Brooklyn Community Services, working with Coney Island residents since the hurricane, secured a grant through the Fund for the City of New York to replace supplies and equipment lost to flooding at the Unity Towers, Carey Gardens and Gravesend Residents Associations.
