Project Renew, a program offered by the NYS Office of Mental Health in conjunction with the Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier, offers free, short-term crisis counseling services to people in Broome and Tioga counties who were affected by the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Lee. We are staffed with professionally trained crisis counselors who go directly into the community to reach individuals whose homes were damaged or destroyed, disaster evacuees, disaster unemployed, children in schools that were delayed or unable to open for the school year, business owners whose businesses were damaged or destroyed, and the elderly and/or disabled populations. Contact with the flood victims is personal and confidential and our efforts focus specifically on assisting individuals recover from their psychological reactions and regain their pre-flood level of functionality.
