Poll: Far More Looked to Friends, Family for Support Post-Sandy Than Federal, State Governments

I'm from your circle of friends and family and I'm here to help!


A silver lining frames the cloud of destruction left by Superstorm Sandy. In their hour of greatest need, families and communities joined forces to help people make it through.

A poll conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research found that after the storm in New York and New Jersey, friends, relatives and neighbors were cited as the most helpful sources of assistance and support.
