GERRITSEN BEACH - A mobile command unit that offers mental health services assisting children and families affected by Superstorm Sandy has received a $100,000 grant from the American Red Cross.

More than 500 families in Gerritsen Beach, which was one of the most damaged during the storm, will benefit from the funding.

The unit has been helping out along Gerritsen Avenue since last year, and will continue to offer services until May 2014, or longer if necessary.
