In February 2017, the Coyote Creek flood caused hundreds of San Jose homes to be submerged in water, displaced over 14,000 residents, and left millions of damages. Friends of Hue and Consortium Asian Americans Recovery Resilience were instrumental in extending efficient relief assistance and recovery services to the affected community.
We’ve provided food and emergency shelter. We also helped the flood victims and their families in their battle to claim against government entities who should have warned and protected them.
Even after years of the devastating disaster, we have continued to reach out to the affected communities to understand what transpired and what we could do differently to be prepared for such occurrences in the future.
