Rebuilding Life after Losing Everything
in Hurricane Sandy
In October 2012, Ed Logan was realizing his dream of living on a sailboat just off of Staten Island—until Hurricane Sandy destroyed his boat and took away everything he had.
After spending more than seven months at a hurricane shelter, Logan was connected with the local Salvation Army in New York, which provided him with a train ticket back to his former home, Chicago. Once in the city, Logan planned to rebuild his life. He also hoped to reconnect with his teenage son, from whom he had become estranged following his divorce.
