Jaida-Lee Colley At Alternative Spring Break 2019

Today we worked on houses in a middle class community. While working on the house with my fellow college students/teammates, I started to think deeper about certain aspects of life. I was always aware of the situation that some families are going through because of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy. Today just reminded me that there are people that still need help and they’re not getting the help they need.

There are some families that have certain benefits so they get more help faster than other fancies that may need more help. Unfortunately with situations like this rich people become richer and poor people become poorer. Sometimes people get priority and more help because they have certain connections. This privilege takes the opportunity away from people that may be in more regent situations that need more help.
