Apartment Living BlogApartment Hunting › ForRent.com & Homes.com Help One Hurricane Victim Family Find a Home



In late October, Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast hard, leaving almost 8 million families throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut without power and thousands without a place to call home. We were inspired by one family in particular and had an opportunity to help support the Correa family of Staten Island.

ForRent.com and Homes.com partnered with bestselling author and actor/entertainer Steve Harvey and The Steve Harvey Show for a special episode, which aired on December 6, 2012, dedicated to helping this family devastated by the superstorm Sandy. We were honored to help the Correa family by committing to cover rent costs for their temporary Staten Island rental home for the next 12 months, surprising them with the donation during the episode.

“There are a lot of special families that deserve our help,” said Terry Slattery, president of Homes.com and ForRent.com. “When we learned about the Correa family and their loss, Homes.com and ForRent.com wanted to step in and help in any way we could as they work to rebuild their lives and we encourage people to continue to donate.”

The holiday season is a good reminder of the things that are important in our lives. It’s a time spent with family and friends and brings to mind what we are thankful for. And for many, it includes helping others in whatever way possible. We are proud to be a part of a company that moves quickly to help those in need; this holiday season we hope to inspire you to do the same.
