Project Description

Organizational Strengths:
USG was formed, to a great extent, to make the point that the nonprofit sector had the capacity to manage those funds in a fiducially responsible fashion, and it's my opinion that we have discharged that responsibility admirably. As a matter of fact, we've kept Attorney General Spitzer apprised as we've been going along, and he's absolutely thrilled that it has worked out as well as it has. It's a real example, in my opinion, of the public sector saying to the private sector, "You have a major responsibility to the public," and the private sector coming together in a very responsible fashion and meeting that challenge.
Part of that approach includes a toll-free hotline for those who need to access services. The September 11th Support Hotline, hosted by Safe Horizon, can be reached at 866-689-HELP (4357) and will be staffed 24-hours-a-day, 7 days a week. In addition to phone access, individuals will be able to access help online through a website to be launched in the coming weeks.
The primary responsibilities of the 9/11 United Services Group include forming and maintaining a comprehensive database that will help track services provided at the participating organizations. The database is a key tool in assisting families and individuals to receive the help they need, in addition to identifying service gaps and avoiding duplication of service. The 9/11 United Services Group will also assign a personal case manager to anyone receiving assistance who wants a helping hand in being walked through the system. The case manager will serve as a point of contact, while helping individuals or families access services.
